Our Mick appears to have lost his way and has a bit to find with the remainder at the weights but only 7lb separates the others on official ratings. Wayward Prince won this last year and appears primed for a repeat having finished more than four lengths ahead of Unioniste when runner-up to Harry Topper in the Charlie Hall at Wetherby. But he has to give a massive 10lb to THE GIANT BOLSTER, who need only to run to something approaching his best to come out on top. He was always trailing in the Betfair Chase at Haydock on his reappearance but that was a race that featured the best staying chasers in the country and he's unlikely to be run off his feet in the same manner here. Katenko hasn't had much time to recover from a fall in the Hennessy last week while Wishfull Thinking is trying this longer trip for the first time on the eve of his 11th birthday.
