BALLY GUNNER is a rare runner here for in-form Lambourn trainer Roger Curtis. The recent easy Plumpton winner may well be capable of defying his penalty as he's unexposed over fences. Harris Hawk will be all the better for a recent third over 2m4f at Haydock and is a dual C&D winner. He makes more appeal than recent track and trip scorer Bob Will, who is upped in class, while Definite Appeal has his first run since finishing second to Isla Peal Fisher here in March and, along with Quacity, was behind Harris Hawk earlier. Too Cool To Fool is probably best watched after a long absence.
