MIDNIGHT TUESDAY and Mister Chancer share the same official rating and were both placed in similar events to this last time. But the former's third at Worcester looks stronger form and Dan Skelton's charge may just edge this. The latter has the more recent form with a second at Fakenham and he's preferred to Bermuda Boy, who has claims at the weights but arrives out of sorts. Risk, Ballyjames and Chosen Milan all return to action under Rules and can be given a chance on the best of their previous form.
