King Edmund showed he stays this longer trip when scrambling home at Kempton three weeks ago. He's been raised the obligatory 6lb but is one for the short-list again if coming here instead of going to Wetherby. Green Belt Elite is also engaged at Ffos Las but Venetia Williams has a second entry in Aachen, who will be all the better for his run at Wetherby. Fine Parchment has been a reformed character this season and bids for a four-timer and a third course win under his amateur pilot, though may need further than this nowadays. TATENEN bounded clear of a big field at Newbury in November on his reappearance. He clearly appreciated the drop in grade and can score again here as he still gets weight from the disappointing former Nicholls inmate Doeslessthanme.
