Lost Legend is unbeaten over fences and chasing a hat-trick after victories at Worcester and Stratford. He won't go down without a fight while Brunswick Gold was impressive over track and trip in May and can go close again off a 7lb higher mark. Gentleman Anshan won in a higher grade at Stratford two runs ago while Aneyeforaneye has also been contesting better races but this looks too tough for Lucky Landing and Court In Session has been disappointing since the turn of the year. The returning Owen Glendower is best watched so we'll stick with PADDY THE HARE after he finally opened his account at Uttoxeter last month. His jumping has improved with experience and he should be able to hold his own in this grade off his current mark.
