Forecast

Manofthemountain (3/1), Dentley De Mee (5/1), Battle Of Ideas (13/2), Apple Mack (7/1), Benechenko (8/1), Monkey Puzzle (9/1), Monty's Award (12/1), Don Lami (16/1), Halloween Harry (16/1), Innisfree Lad (20/1), Lex Talionis (20/1), Forgot To Ask (25/1), Putdecashonthedash (66/1)

Verdict
Emma Lavelle's Manofthemountain is 2-2 over fences but he's only beaten six rivals in gaining his wins and should face a stiffer ask now off his latest 6lb rise, ensuring he is opposed. Lex Talionis could run a big race at a price if in the mood, while Apple Mack has possibilities for better raised in trip. Monty's Award is in good tune but preference is for BATTLE OF IDEAS, with Colin Tizzard's runner having shaped well at Fontwell (second) 11 days ago on return from a break. He's a good-ground winner and should go well in this.
  1. Battle Of Ideas
  2. Manofthemountain
  3. Monty's Award
