This is almost certain to be run at a fast pace as several of these, including Santa's Son, Ultimate and Carrietau like to race prominently. Tara Royal has disappointed so far this season but is starting to look well handicapped while De Boitron is another racing off a favourable mark today. With a low weight, Kosta Brava could also figure and Lightening Rod couldn't be discounted if his Catterick mishap has left no ill-effects. James Reveley rides this course as well as anyone and looks to have a good chance of another winner on board WOODY WALLER. John Wade's gelding may have found one too good at Wetherby and Haydock this winter but still has a bit of scope and is already a winner here over hurdles
