Sheepclose got off the mark over fences with victory over 2m here last week. Both Tregaro and Le Grand Chene were tailed off on that occasion and the former is expected to go close again along with last month's Fontwell winner Catch The Rascal. Douglas arrives on the back of a couple of wins over timber though was well beaten in both previous starts over the larger obstacles and preference goes to THE BOSS. He's yet to land a chase but has gone close in better company than this on more than one occasion and can finally open his account.
