Swansbrook gave supporters of Marty's Mission a scare at Taunton three weeks ago but only finished a length ahead of the staying-on COUP ROYALE. Claire Hitch's charge could be on the way back and is taken to reverse that form and land this under Josh Guerriero ahead of Ski Sunday, who still doesn't convince over fences but probably has more natural ability than most of these. Findlay's Find would have a chance if fully wound-up while Pathian Prince has his sights lowered. Vincitore could also figure if anywhere near his best but looks a tricky ride nowadays.
