Swallows Delight only won a hunter chase here last month and might struggle against seasoned handicappers. The Rattler Obrien won here over hurdles in April but has yet to score over fences under Rules while Caballo De Marcus and King Cyrus have been competing in point-to-points. Sadler's Star was tailed off on his reappearance at Towcester, though should strip fitter here. NEVEROWNUP will need a new career-best to win off a mark of 113 but his yard is going great guns and a four-timer beckons, though Rockchasebullet may have found 3m on soft ground too much last time.
