Mush Mir is the highest rated of these over jumps but ran poorly on his comeback and may need a bit more time. Cross Of Honour ran well in a chase at Fakenham last month and should be thereabouts but LIKEAROLLINGSTONE is just preferred. He's shown good progress over timber of late winning his last two starts and is worth sticking with in his current form. Five Rivers has lost his way a little but went very close over C&D in one of these events back in February and has to come into the reckoning on that evidence. Unforgettable won a novice chase back in April and looks best of the rest.
