THEMILANHORSE beat Tour D'Argent by a length at Warwick in December and the runner-up went on to win his next two starts, beating An Capall Mor by nine lengths at Doncaster in one of those runs. Harry Derham reduces the top weight's burden by 7lb here and the partnership can come out on top again. Hit The Headlines finished third over this trip at Kempton in January on the same day that Up To The Mark filled the same spot behind Roll The Dice over 2m at Warwick. Nicky Henderson's charge should do best of that pair today and also makes more appeal than Tara Rose and Sohappyharry, who disappointed last time. Autumm Spirit was pulled up at Wincanton on her latest start and is better over fences.
