Winning form is in notably short supply although Van Diemens Land did go close when finishing third in a similar race at Fontwell, and Theoystercatcher gets to take her chance off the same mark as she had when a distant second here in June. BUDDY LOVE won a bumper at Towcester on debut and having left Martin Keighley to join Nigel Twiston-Davies, we'll hope that the combination of new surroundings and a tongue-strap can bring about a return to form. Hollow Heartbeat makes a debut for Brendan Powell and though he is still a maiden; the market will give us a fair idea as to what to anticipate on his first experience of a quicker surface. Bold Raider has been beaten out of sight on his five career starts but is sure to be popular with Tony McCoy aboard.
