Kinkeel has run three times over fences here with two victories and a narrow defeat to his credit including this race a year ago from just 1lb lower. He's not in the best of form but obviously loves the track and rates a threat. Lerida had Mamba just over a length back in second and FOLLOW THE SUN a further length away in third when scoring at Huntingdon and there's little in it at the weights this time, though the latter appeared to be going the best for most of the way and can take his revenge on the way to a first chasing success. Peak Seasons and Mad Professor were a long way behind and appear unlikely to take their revenge, while More Shennanigans is still a maiden after 28 career starts, most of them over fences.
