It can be an advantage to race up with the pace over shorter trips on the National course but there are a few front-runners in this and they may be tempted to take each other on. Toby Lerone arrives in form after a couple of wins in minor company and he made all at Lingfield last month. Rebel Rebellion also likes to be prominent, as do Dunowen Point and Poole Master though the latter pair have been off the track since the spring. Forgotten Gold's jumping has to be a worry around here though he would probably have finished ahead of Current Event at Fakehnam on his reappearance had he not blundered at the last. Midnight Appeal and Plein Pouvoir were successful at Bangor and Wincanton respectively last month and You Must Know Me has shown promise, though is still awaiting a first victory over fences. GANSEY hasn't won since 2011 but was beaten less than two lengths by Little Josh in this last year off a 4lb higher mark. He could be worth a punt after a pipe-opener on the Mildmay course here in October. Shangani and Frontier Spirit look best of the rest.
