Verdict

DO IT FOR THY SEN got back on track in first-time cheekpieces when fourth at Leicester 3 weeks ago, splitting next-time-out winners in the process. He ought to stay this far so gets the vote in favour of Aheadfullofdreams, who was unplaced both starts in Irish points but is very likely to be well prepared for this chase debut.
