Touched off over C&D two starts ago and again runner-up at Sandown last month (four ran); thorough stayer and won't mind if it rains; still open to progress and can certainly be considered.

J: Sam Twiston-Davies

T: Nigel Twiston-Davies

Has some good form this season, notably when just missing out over 3m4f at Haydock before running perfectly well in a deep C&D handicap (again soft); however, has dropped his guard the last twice and this is a tough race in which to bounce back.

It was unlike him to run so moderately at Sandown, albeit in a handicap that's worked out well; in form (and consistent) prior to that, having just missed out over 3m4f at Haydock before running perfectly well in a deep Cheltenham handicap (3m2f; again soft); stuck on a tough mark but is by no means dismissed.

T: Peter Bowen

C&D winner in hunter chase company and was smart in that scene, finishing fourth in the big one at Cheltenham in 2019; however, has been off since disappointing at Wetherby a year ago and he'll do well to win this first time back; now with Peter Bowen.

No model of consistency (well behind Favori de Sivola two starts ago) but application of blinkers saw him back to his best at Plumpton latest; no guarantee that he'll be in the same mood but impossible to rule out; has made the running but so have several others in this field.
