Canal Bank scored under today's rider at Market Rasen earlier this month, but faces stiffer competition here off a 5lb higher mark. Tony McCoy is on board stablemate Afistfullofpebbles so an improved effort is expected from him after being well beaten in a couple of starts early this year, but the vote goes to TAFIKA. Paul Webber's chaser wasn't disgraced in heavy ground at Warwick off today's mark in February having scored at Leicester before that and can make a winning reappearance for a yard in decent form. A dual winner over hurdles, Cotswold Charmer should go well on his chasing debut and makes most appeal of the remainder.
