LOOSE PREFORMER never recovered from a bad blunder at the first fence at Wetherby last time and was eventually pulled-up. He'd looked on the upgrade before that winning his first couple of starts over fences and can get back on track here. Mic's Delight had also made a good start to his chasing career when recording back to back wins over these fences but found life tough in a Listed chase a Cheltenham last time. He should go close, as should Baile Anrai back in this company after being upped into Graded class on his last couple of outings. Brunswick Gold and Kauto Relko have outside claims in a competitive contest.
