Tony McCoy is Nostringsattached's regular pilot so the fact that the champ has got off Jonjo O'Neill's enigmatic gelding to ride CAPPAGH here speaks volumes. Philip Hobbs' six-year-old has the potential to be much better than this grade and the fact that he hasn't raced since February isn't off-putting as he goes well fresh. Health Is Wealth looks high enough in the weights now, while I'm A Legend and Soulard have been disappointing lately but Spock has to be a danger after making amends for his Stratford faux pas when scoring in a novices' handicap over C&D last month, though this is more competitive.
