Verdict

Mulligan's Man - a bumper, hurdles and points winner - was expected to be suited by the switch to fences but has proved most frustrating so far. Rhymers Ha' is also becoming expensive to follow so we'll stick with the proven ability of RISKIER. John Wade's gelding won at Newcastle and Sedgefield in the spring and looks a progressive chaser. He's also gone well here in the past while Prince Tam tends to reserve his best for Newcastle, though was successful at Kelso last season.
