Brody Bleu beat Adrenalin Flight at Exeter last time but the form isn't that much stronger than Great's Autrechene's fourth at Market Rasen to Be My Deputy. Gandalfe wasn't at his best last time but has a shout on his earlier third at Leicester while Upton Mead scored at Kempton on his penultimate start and is only 3lb higher today. HEALTH IS WEALTH found Manger Hanagment too good at Taunton last month but is facing an easier task in this and Colin Tizzard's charge can take advantage and come out best ahead of the frustrating Chestnut Ben.
