Having saddled three of the last six winners of this Listed contest, Paul Nicholls will be confident of another success with PLENTY POCKET. He was always going well when opening his account at Ascot last month and is well worth a try at this higher level. Molotof is conceding 2lb to the selection but certainly wasn't winning out of turn at Wincanton and is probably capable of better. Butler, War Poet and Our Joe Mac have all won on the Flat this year and should make their mark over timber. Richard Fahey's gelding had the highest rating of the trio and may do best today.
