Cartmel form can be a law unto itself but So Bazaar has a good opportunity if building on a very good second to dual winner Rolling Dough at the Cumbrian venue last month. He was only beaten three lengths that day so should give a good account here off a mark of 75 as all of his best form has come on the prevailing quick ground. Raifteiri is a possible, despite being 2lb out of the weights, but DE CHISSLER is the choice. He remains unproven over fences after falling on his chasing debut here behind Man With Van but the level of his point-to-point and hurdles form makes him an interesting contender.
