This looks between Savant Bleu and SHOCKINGTIMES. Of similar ability over hurdles, it worked out that way over fences too with Charlie Mann's charge finishing just ahead of the former when runner-up at Taunton last month. He gets the nod to confirm running on only his second start over fences. Mariinsky and Xenophon make their chasing debuts and may well figure if taking to the larger obstacles as neither Arbeo or Tricky Tree have shown much so far.
