Green To Gold is on a hat-trick after wins at Worcester and Huntingdon last year. He's been waiting for the better ground and had a pipe-opener on the Flat last month. Course and distance winner Topthorn looks held by the top weight on the form book but it would be no surprise to see Monarch's Way bounce back from a poor run at Kempton over Christmas and a long absence doesn't entirely rule out Lucy's Perfect. SUBLIME TALENT has only been raised a couple of pounds since beating Jump City at Taunton and the runner-up has franked the form since. We'll take him to follow up here.
