There are five previous bumper winners in this with Gordon Elliott's recent course and distance scorer The Unsub possibly the pick ahead of Kempton winner Miles To Memphis. Azure Glamour kept on well for second at Wetherby on his debut but Special Wells wasn't far behind and will also have improved for the experience. SAINT CHARLES made a lasting impression when sauntering clear in a Blankney point-to-point in February and J P McManus saw enough to get out the cheque book and send him to Nicky Henderson. He could be anything and, as he can use his four-year-old's allowance, this looks a good starting point under Rules.
