Reginaldhino has made mistakes in his recent starts and though reasonably treated will need to jump much better. Ballywatt is getting closer to landing that elusive first success though connections won't be happy he's been raised 4lb for his recent defeat at Newbury. Ajzal goes well fresh but is 10lb higher than his last winning mark. NO NO BINGO couldn't quite cope with Noble Legend at Uttoxeter, when Cruchain was a long way behind, but that was still a good run and he's expected to return to winning ways here. Rouge Et Blanc had failed to complete the course in five of his previous six starts but landed an old fashioned gamble at Folkestone for which a 15lb rise in the weights is his reward. Daneva found 3m too far last time after much better efforts over the minimum trip
