REY NACARADO never looked in any danger when accounting for a field of experienced handicappers at Plumpton last month. Charlie Longsdon's six-year-old still has plenty of scope over the larger obstacles and is fancied to defy a 9lb rise in the weights. Mallusk won over 2m at Uttoxeter last month but stayed this trip in point-to-points and is another likely to improve with experience. Mohi Rahrere has been in decent form of late but Rear Gunner has already had six starts over fences and looks a little one-paced. Arturo Uno is also beginning to look exposed but did have some form in decent company last season and was in the firing-line when falling on his reappearance at Ascot - he could make the frame with a clear round.
