9/2
Arrives on the back of three solid efforts this term, third of 4 to Shishkin in Desert Orchid Chase at Kempton last time. Landed this contest 12 months ago, so he's firmly in the mix once more.

4/5
Has taken really well to fences and followed up his C&D win with ready victory in 2m Ascot handicap 29 days ago. Up another 9 lb but he's very much on the up and remains weighted to go in again.

12/1
Useful form for Paul Nicholls last term, but he broke a blood vessel on his debut for current yard and has been a below-par third both runs since over C&D and at Ascot. Has plenty to prove at present.

Reliable sort who arrives on a hat-trick after landing 2m handicaps at Newbury and Ludlow, strong at the finish on each occasion. Has a career-high mark to overcome but sure to make his presence felt.

Forecasts

Brave Seasca (4/5), Not Available (3/1), Sky Pirate (9/2), Fast Buck (12/1)

Verdict

BRAVE SEASCA has quickly made into a useful chaser and a 9 lb rise in the weights doesn't look sufficient to prevent him from completing a quick hat-trick for the in-form Venetia Williams yard. Not Available also bids for a hat-trick and this gutsy sort rates a big threat, with last year's winner Sky Pirate not ruled out either in an intriguing handicap.

  1. BRAVE SEASCA (FR)
  2. NOT AVAILABLE (IRE)
  3. SKY PIRATE
