In depth

Verdict

A couple of slow jumps put paid to ROYAL CHATELIER's chances at Exeter earlier this month but this looks slightly less competitive and Michael Blake's charge may be able to get the better of Dushy Valley, who had a very hard race when second at Plumpton and may be in the handicapper's grip now. Roybuoy and Midnight Charmer both need to improve again if they are to go one better than last time but Magical Treasure could figure with a clear round and looks the pick of the remainder.
