THANKS FOR COMING and The Musical Guy appear the two to concentrate on in this with preference for the former, who has his sights lowered after failing to complete at Newbury and Cheltenham. Previous runs here and at Sandown give him the edge over Nigel Twiston-Davies' charge, who has been knocking on the door but probably needs 3m. Regal Presence won over hurdles at Ascot last month and can't be ignored if taking to fences and Brough Academy may be the pick of the remainder.
