This looks a decent contest for the track with five previous winners facing the starter. Old Wigmore was a little disappointing at Hereford last time but Buck Mulligan ran well when third under a penalty at Kempton two weeks ago. Camden comes here off the back of a solid second to Russian Song at Newbury while Rudanphast can be forgiven his last of eight behind Back In Focus in a Grade 2 at Haydock last month. Total Submission wasn't disgraced when third at Catterick last month but this longer trip could be a problem so we'll side with SWINGKEEL. Only beaten half-a-length over today's C&D on his hurdling debut, Sam Twiston-Davies' mount was beaten at odds-on at Ludlow next time but today's better ground brought out the best in him on the Flat and he is worth another chance receiving weight from all bar Gearbox and Creswell Bramble.
