SKY KHAN's form looks head and shoulders above that of his rivals and he need only reproduce the form of his latest second at Galway to get back to winning ways in this. Miranour has been chasing lately and has to give 16lb to the selection but he has McCoy doing the steering and looks the one for forecast-backers as Hit The Top was beaten more than 13 lengths at Cartmel and looks a chaser in the making. Cloudy Joker may also do better over fences as he's already won between the flags.
