This looks wide-open but it's difficult to see Pete The Feat defying top weight as he's gone up another 4lb since his third at Haydock. Amigo ran well in the Welsh National and is less exposed than most while Jump City finished ahead of On Trend and Relax when second to Planet Of Sound at Kempton and is consistent. Novices Ardkilly Witness and Hansupfordetroit are rising through the ranks and could be interesting but may be too close in the weights to THEATRICAL STAR. The return to 3m will suit Colin Tizzard's recent Ascot third and he thrives on heavy going. He makes more appeal than Fruity O'Rooney on this season's form and gets the nod, but Roalco De Farges is worth monitoring in the betting as he's not badly treated on his return from a long break.
