GREEN TO GOLD finished third when last over fences but has been in fine form on the Flat recently and won an amateurs race at Doncaster last week. Don Cantillon's charge could prove hard to beat if translating that form back to this code. Skint won over fences back in 2011 and finished third over hurdles at Ffos Las last month while Dark Energy looks likely to step up on his modest chasing debut at Newton Abbot and finish closer today. Milgen Bay has a shout on his win at Leicester earlier in the year and Tony McCoy takes over the reins on recent Uttoxeter third Another Flutter.
