Buachaill Alainn opened his account over fences at Worcester in June but soft ground is a worry on his return to action. Swatow Typhoon will be at home on today's surface but he's making his chasing debut having landed a double over timber early in the year. It could pay to stick with MENDIP EXPRESS after the multiple point-to-point winner scored over fences at Wetherby on his chasing debut as there should be plenty more to come from Harry Fry's charge. Bob Ford has a shout on his second at Ffos Las last month but Chestertern is harder to fancy.
