“There’s a bit of a weight difference and also I think this track (New course) will suit us better than the other one,” said George.
“The New course is a bit more galloping and hopefully having had a bit of experience now can help him reverse the placings.
“It’s a very interesting race, despite the small field.”
While the eight-year-old is yet to win in seven starts over fences, she has never finished out of the frame, including in some good races like the Topham over the Grand National fences.
“We decided on the handicap rather than the novice because she just looks better in,” said Greatrex.
“She seems in good order and hopefully she can get off the mark. She’s been so consistent and run well a lot of times, but it would be nice to get her head in front.
“It’s her second run after a wind op, she’s in great form at home and is in tip-top order, hopefully this can be the day.
“She’s got a nice weight, she’ll like the ground so she ticks all the boxes.”
“When he ran the other day that was three-miles-three and that just stretched him a little bit first time out,” said George.
“With a run under his belt and coming back slightly in trip, that should just make it a bit easier for him.
“He travelled and jumped as well as ever, but I think having not had a run it just stretched him a bit.
“He always runs well there and there’s no reason to think he won’t again.”
