Hallings Comet was given a superb ride by Aidan Coleman to score at Worcester last month and the third, Drum Valley, franked the form at the same track on Saturday. He will probably try and make all the running again but MAKARI might prove too classy in the closing stages. Nicky Henderson's charge also likes to race up with the pace and impressed on his chasing bow at Uttoxeter. He beat Seventh Sky by 11 lengths without really coming off the bridle and a line through the second gives him the beating of the mare Fairyinthewind. It's A Gimme hasn't had much racing over the last couple of years but is useful on his day and could yet make a chaser. He's preferred to Mount Vesuvius of the others.
