Major Mongo and Festies Pride have won between the flags recently and have the scope to do well over regulation fences while Carry Each Other found 3m4f stretching his stamina at Punchestown after running really well behind Vesper Bell there earlier. Mattara doesn't have much in the way of pace but should get round safely and has place prospects but it's SIR HARRY CASH who is handed the vote. He's yet to win a race of any description but his overall form over hurdles and fences puts him right in the frame for this. Sandeel Bay and Western Man are others with chances in a race where the market could prove a strong guide.
