Has not really taken to chasing and was well beaten at Kempton (2m5f, good) three weeks ago having made the running. Chances of a soft lead in this small field but vunerable to an improving type.
Been struggling in handicaps recently over fences and is now 0-11 in this discipline. Has a bit to find on form against a couple of these and more will certainly be needed to come out on top.
Was beaten at odds-on on chasing debut at Towcester (2m5½f, soft) three weeks ago. Ground got very testing that day and lost nothing in defeat. Conditions and track here are likely to suit and is a big player.
Beaten favourite at odds-on in a three-runner affair at Newton Abbot last week. Was a touch free that day and not sure small field helped. Similar scenario here but drop in trip should help and is a danger to all if settling slightly better.
Last Year's Winner
