7/1

Winner at this meeting last year, steps up in trip this time around and although outclassed at Aintree in April, efforts around that (against the useful Ardkilly Witness) suggest he may get among the medals if he stays this trip.

1/1

Top class hunter chaser, just touched off in the 2017 Foxhunters by Pacha Du Polder. Efforts in the big races this year a bit below par, holds a class advantage over most of these at best but does need to bounce back now.

9/4

Former Scottish National winner, last win coming under this pilot at Kelso in January. Bad mistake at a key time cost him any chance at Cheltenham latest and with ground to suit, looks the main threat to Wonderful Charm here.

7/1

Winner at Fakenham latest, taking advantage of the leaders going too quickly and simply outstaying them late in the piece. Needs plenty more here and may be playing for minor money only.

1211-11OR: 121C
16/1

Was useful enough under Rules but not as good these days and despite a win in a Conditions race at Larkhill in February he's not completed in two starts since, and looks to have plenty to find.

Useful enough pointer at his level a couple of seasons ago, but appears out of form and has no realistic chance of success here.

Betting

Forecast

Wonderful Charm (1/1), Al Co (9/4), Curraigflemens (7/1), Strollawaynow (7/1), Adrenalin Flight (16/1), Little Chip (40/1)

Verdict

The question to ask as far as Wonderful Charm goes is what sort of form he in after a couple of moderate efforts by his own high standards. If he can bounce back to his best, he should take this, but that's not a given. With Curraigflemens to prove himself at the trip, it offers AL CO a great chance if he can cut the mistakes that sometimes hold him back. Strollawaynow will keep going when others have had enough and might squeak a place.
