Fourth in the Grand National in April and third earlier in the Welsh National at Chepstow, Cappa Bleu is the pick of the weights in this but Evan Williams' yard is just struggling for winners at present. Paul Webber's stable is also in the doldrums so the enigmatic Sarando may be worth opposing as well while Beamazed returns from a lay-off. ACROSS THE BAY was third in a Grade 1 hurdle at Aintree in the spring and returned to fences with a comfortable victory at Kelso. He should go on to better things over the larger obstacles and gets the nod here with Soft Spoken Guy much better over hurdles.
