Kingsmere would probably have won here on his chasing debut had he not fallen at the last. Henry Daly's seven-year-old still has plenty of scope and won't be far away if that tumble hasn't left a mark but DOMTALINE looked a natural over fences when scoring at Ludlow and can defy the penalty. Grafite ran well when second to Eastlake at Uttoxeter and should be winning soon while Dantari will have learned from his third at Ludlow but Harvest Song looks very one paced.
