AP McCoy is a rare booking for Alan King but the champion jockey has picked up a most attractive ride on TURN OVER SIVOLA, whose handicap chase form puts him well clear of these rivals on official ratings. He should oblige with a degree of comfort if putting in a clear round and can finally put and end to his frustrating run of six seconds from seven starts over fences. Dont Take Me Alive is the likeliest beneficiary should things go awry with the selection as he's looked promising on both starts over fences and should have more to offer. Chat Room, a former Godolphin inmate, is an interesting recruit to fences for John Ferguson.
