Nicky Henderson, Anthony Honeyball and Donald McCain enjoy plenty of success with their bumper horses and all three trainers will fancy their chances in this. The former saddles Dungarvan Lass, a half-sister to a bumper winner, while the second-named introduces point-to-point winner Lily Waugh. But JE T'AIME showed enough when third at Catterick last month to suggest she can win a race like this. Celestial Island and Rising Teal are more exposed but should be thereabouts again.
