This two and a half mile novice handicap chase sees an interesting runner in Mr No More. He returned from a lengthy three year absence to run a mighty race at Chepstow on his comeback. If he has recovered from that race, and with a step up in trip he should go very close. That being said this looks a much tougher task than when last seen.
Other notable runners include Hold The Note and Champagne Well. The former looks well treated by the handicapper but could be on a downward slide. The latter is a consistent type yet this trip doesn't look ideal.
ALNADAM from the yard of Dan Skelton gets my vote. He’s a consistent improver and despite going up in weight for his Sandown win, he still looks nicely weighted. Likely to sit behind the pace in a handy position and should be capable of seeing the race out strongly.
