Altior bids to get back on track after a string of well documented issues, beaten just the one over fences and unbeaten at the trip, this represents a good chance for him to silence the doubters although he is priced accordingly.
Wandering off-piste for a moment, personally I would love to see the ''Champ'' bounce back to winning ways though this might not be as straightforward as it appears and advising anyone to bet an odds on shot with such baggage is unjustifiable whichever way you dress it up.
SCEAU ROYAL often runs well without winning and has previously given the aforementioned great a run for his money, with race fitness a non issue, he is taken to run into a place for those interested in finding an alternative angle.
Duc Des Genievres only gave way late in the day at Cheltenham and could have his own way up front once more.
Rouge Vif has mistakes in him and cannot afford to blunder his way around here and though he has plenty on, Bun Doran does appear to like it here at Kempton and could run close to the money.
