Run Ructions Run and Sultana Belle have penalties to carry for their victories with the former's recent success at Wetherby looking the stronger form over the Irish challenger. MAISON DE VILLE disappointed on his last two starts in bumpers when strongly fancied but his best form came on his debut on good ground so, with AP McCoy taking over the reins, he's expected to make a winning start over timber. Bonnet's Vino has been inconsistent so far but ran quite well at Market Rasen last time while Retrieve The Stick should be suited by this longer trip.
