In depth

Verdict

Guards Chapel scored at Lingfield in January last year but hasn't raced since placed over hurdles last March. Life Of Laughter improved for the step up to 2m at Wolverhampton last month and has a shout off a 2lb higher mark but SCRIBE makes most appeal. The latter won over 2m at Southwell a fortnight ago but David Evans' charge is perfectly at home on the Polytrack and can follow-up dropping down a grade for this. Soweto Star has won off much higher marks on the Turf and has a chance if staying the distance.
