Jetnova has gone close in a couple of jumpers' bumpers lately and should be a factor here if confidence has been restored. Moonlight Drive would certainly have a chance on his best form but Mister Dillon has been a little disappointing this term and Chepstow third Cocacobana is more interesting, though is creeping up the weights again. My Arch is hard to predict nowadays while the trip could be a problem for Dawn Twister, though he wasn't far behind Cocacobana over 2m4f at Ffos Las last time and the fifth has won since. HARVEY'S HOPE left previous form behind when winning narrowly over 2m4f here six weeks ago. He's taking on better opposition now off a 5lb higher mark but it may well be worth risking him over this extra half-mile if he is on an upward curve. Velator returns from a lengthy absence and is best watched today.
