looks the obvious starting point for this race with his two very impressive wins on his last two starts. He's a horse that seems to be quickly on the improve, and will need to be to overcome an 11lb rise. The concern isn't the weight he has to carry though, it's the fact that all his best form is on better ground than we're likely to get today. On that basis, the suggestion is A LITTLE MAGIC
, who seems versatile ground wise and should enjoy the additional distance of this race compared to his hard fought success last time. Jaboltiski
also looks interesting if repeating the performance that saw him finish fourth to the quirky but talented Betbright Chase winner Pilgrim's Bay at Sandown in December.
