Go Amwell is chasing a hat-trick over course and distance but the ground may have turned against John Jenkins' Huntingdon specialist. Kilrush was all out to win at Worcester in May but is 9lb higher now and more interesting is Elegant Olive, who has only ever won here and is just 3lb higher than when last successful. Thedebofotheyear is another mare with claims on her best form while Lucky To Be Alive was sent off favourite at Uttoxeter last month, though had just been headed when falling two out. DOM LUKKA alternates between hurdles and fences but is better treated over the smaller obstacles at present and probably wouldn't need to improve much on his latest third at Worcester to take a hand in the finish here. Minella For Steak is in danger of becoming disappointing but may still be the pick of the remainder.
