COURT IN MOTION is likely to run here rather than Cheltenham and can end his winless run. Emma Lavelle's seven-year-old was the only one to make a race of it with Dynaste at Newbury and is 3lb better off than when a close third to Houblon Des Obeaux over a shorter trip in a Grade 2 at Wincanton on his chasing bow. Minella Class' victory at Ascot will have been a real confidence-booster but this is tougher while Makethe Mostofnow was a long way behind Houblon Des Obeaux in Harry Topper's race at Newbury and looks to have little chance of turning the tables.
