Fighter Jet is on a hat-trick after a couple of victories at Stratford but this represents a step up in grade. God's Own proved a reliable sort last season over this trip while Open Day won at Leicester and Ffos Las last season, though would have preferred some rain. Carrigmorna King didn't really take to fences last season but is 6lb better off than when fifth to Kitegen in this last year and could go well but FOX RUN is more interesting. He's still largely unexposed and came up a progressive novice when beaten at Taunton on his latest start in April. Hidden Identity isn't without a chance off bottom weight and looks the pick of the remainder.
