12st 0lb

J: Alex Edwards

T: Mel Rowley

Sound performances in the last two runnings of this race, winning in 2021 and runner-up in 2022; won the latest final of this series at Sandown (soft) in January; has solid credentials and should go well.

11st 9lb

J: Alex Edwards

T: Mel Rowley

13yo front-runner who beat a big field in the veterans final at Sandown (3m, soft; 6lb higher today) in January; outsider of four in Listed race at Kelso four weeks ago but the scale of his defeat is rather disconcerting; won in 2015 over hurdles on his only race here.

J: Alex Edwards

T: Mel Rowley

13yo front-runner who beat a big handicap field to win the veterans' final at Sandown (3m, soft) in January; has also won on good/good to soft; vulnerable if today's opponents are at the top of their games but he can make another bold bid.

11st 10lb

J: Alex Edwards

T: Mel Rowley

Front-runner; creditable second at Aintree (3m1f, good to soft) in October in the same veterans' chase he won last term; 2m4f provided a ready excuse back there five weeks ago; okay on soft, probably on heavy; more interesting again today but one or two others may be better handicapped.

11st 11lb

J: Alex Edwards

T: Mel Rowley

Front-runner who reappeared with a near-9l second of 11 here (3m1f, good to soft) in October, in the same veterans' chase he won last year (good ground); he's also effective at this trip and could play a leading role at a track he clearly likes.
