Stow has won three of his last four in this grade and has the highest official rating but Michael Blake's nine-year-old is undoubtedly better with plenty of give in the ground and may struggle to keep tabs on DOVILS DATE if Tim Vaughan's charge is in the same mood as when making all in a handicap over a shorter trip here two weeks ago. Takeroc, a 119-rated chaser, isn't out of this but isn't getting any younger. Regal D'Estruval easily won a Fakenham seller 10 days ago but has it all to do here on these terms.
