With rain forecast, the ground could have turned very soft by the time this finale gets under way and proven stamina may be all-important. Man Of Plenty shouldn't be found wanting and chased home the well-treated Ballinderry Boy at Ascot last time, though is 3lb higher here. Rocktherunway was third over 2m1f on soft ground at Ayr four weeks ago while winning hurdler Stopped Out will be staying on when others have cried enough. Perfect Heart and Wadaa can't be ignored but Hamilton winner King Of Paradise steps up in trip. Forced Family Fun has a penalty to carry for his win at Ayr and Alwilda has become disappointing so we'll give another chance to NASHVILLE. Highly tried since winning at Chester in August, he has the beating of Warwick winner Nateeja on the form book and is back in the right grade.
