BOLD CHIEF is two from two over the larger obstacles and can confirm Ludlow running with former stablemate Oscargo, though the latter is 6lb better off today and should put up more of a fight over today's longer trip as he has plenty of stamina. Providing there are no mishaps, it's difficult to see any of the other two being involved at the business end though both Golden Squirrel and Volio Vincente have been placed in point-to-points.
