RINGA BAY has won both starts over regulation fences at Southwell this year. He's added another point-to-point win since last month's defeat of Alvarado and looks the one beat in this. Alpine Breeze has won three times over hurdles but makes her chasing debut having been off the track for over a year while Broughton Green has a similar profile returning from a lengthy absence for his chasing bow. Behind The Scenes has won his last three starts in point-to-points but has yet to score under Rules.
