Colour Squadron has been far from convincing over fences so far and may be worth taking on again here at the likely odds. DARE ME was up against a decent novice in Cantlow at Taunton and, though falling in Simonsig's race at Ascot in December, was also second at Ludlow in November. This may be his best chance so far over fences as he gets 7lb from Act Of Kalanisi, who also fell in that Ascot race but was thought good enough to be entered in the Kingmaker at Warwick yesterday. Theatrical Star has ability but has been pulled up in two of his last three starts.
