Doncaster winner Relax looks to be improving but has a penalty to overcome here, which won't be easy. We prefer MOUNTAINOUS, who is another progressive sort. Richard Lee's eight-year-old is still a novice but he jumped well when winning at Chepstow in December and again when only finding a rejuvenated Loch Ba too good on his handicap debut at Newbury. Richard's Sundance will probably make the running but should be thereabouts again at the finish and makes more appeal than There's No Panic, who probably needs to be dropped a few pounds. George Nympton may struggle to last home over this longer trip and the company looks too hot for Delgany Gunner while Only Witness lacks a recent run and The Falklander is woefully out of form.
