LADY MYFANWY won this in 2009 and again 12 months ago when 2010 winner Cannon Bridge was tailed off when pulled up. With her mares' allowance, Myfanwy Miles' 11-year-old can complete the hat-trick as I Have Dreamed, who has won three of his last four starts under Rules, is probably better over slightly shorter trips. Rowdy Rampage is a prolific winner between the flags and won a handicap chase over this trip at Worcester last summer. He looks best of the rest ahead of recent points winners Oslot and Screenscraper.
