Chac Du Cadran was largely progressive last season and has conditions to suit. Full Of Joy won at Bangor last month but looks high enough in the weights now, though does enjoy a fitness advantage over most of his rivals. INCENTIVISE goes well fresh and races off the same mark as when second to Top Dancer at Cheltenham in April. Michael Nolan takes off a further 3lb and Richard Lee's 10-year-old is preferred to Dusky Bob and My Boy Paddy, who has never really fulfilled early promise but has claims off a lenient mark. Mohi Rahrere and Papamoa are probably best watched returning from a break and Ultra Du Chatelet has become disappointing.
