Soft ground could pose problems for a few of these but Elenika and COOLE RIVER both have winning form on the surface. The latter was having his first start for Emma Lavelle when beaten just over two lengths by Grandioso at Wincanton. A very useful hurdler in Ireland, he looks a promising recruit to chasing and can score here as Monarch's Way has a penalty to overcome for his victory in a small race at Musselburgh and Grove Pride may be better over further. Milarrow was doing his best work at the finish when third over 2m1f at Newbury, however, and makes more appeal than Rajdhani Express and Aikideau.
