Milo Milan is 6lb higher than when landing this 12 months ago but goes well fresh and a repeat isn't out of the question. However, it may be worth giving UPTHEMSTEPS a chance to continue the improvement he showed in the spring when he won a novices' chase at Towcester and a better race at Kelso. Merry King and Bubbly Bruce will both be better for recent comeback runs but Seedless was soon in trouble at Hereford at the start of the month and she looks plenty high enough in the weights at present.
