BE MY DEPUTY has shot up the weights but deservedly so after four wins in his last five outings. He still gets 3lb from hunter chaser Flaming Gorge and this is his best trip so he's the obvious selection. Bally Gunner's jumping has gone to pieces since he won at Plumpton in November while Xenophon has unseated his rider in his last two and is still a pound higher than when beaten here last month.
