Tom Cheesman may lack the experience to get the best out of the quirky Lord Lescribaa, though the 10-year-old did win this in 2011. Veteran pointer Joacci knows his way around here while Interpleader has also been in good form between the flags lately. Brendan Powell may get a tune out of Fontwell second Dimpsy Time but the mare in unproven on ground this quick. ROYAL MILE goes well for Kieron Edgar and first-time blinkers could well spark a revival. Only 3lb higher than when scoring at Chepstow last October, David Pipe's nine-year-old can come good again in this as Petroupetrov invariably finds at least one too good. Might As Well and Pacha D'Oudairies looks the pick of the remainder.
