3/1

Justified odds-on favouritism in a point-to-point at Mollington (good) last month. Also successful in a hunter chase at Lingfield (heavy) this season and represents a leading stable in this.

Winner over an extended 3m1f here on soft ground in February. Beaten favourite twice since including when 27L fifth at Newton Abbot (good-to-firm) last time out and likely to play a leading role in this contest.

Returned from over three years off the track when finishing second at Garthorpe (soft) in February. Beaten twice since but a decent effort in finishing third of five at Warwick (good) over an extended 3m1f last time out and has a leading jockey booked today.

10/1

Surprise winner of this contest in 2015 but well beaten in five starts since including three times for this stable. Beaten 53L over an extended 4m at Cheltenham (good) last time out and others make more appeal today.

Betting

Forecast

Mon Parrain (4/5), Man Of Steel (3/1), Little Chip (9/2), Helpston (6/1), Lets Get Serious (10/1), Little Legend (10/1), Tugboat (12/1)

Verdict

LITTLE CHIP finished a close third in this contest last year and can go two better by taking the 2017 renewal under his useful amateur jockey. The selection wears cheekpieces for the first time today and can get the better of Mon Parrain who has to put a couple of disappointing efforts behind him here while the veteran Little Legend can claim third.
