Lady De La Vega doesn't look an easy ride and was tailed off over a longer trip at Fontwell last month. Azulada Bay has been below par since returning from a break while Horseshoe Reef is now tried in a visor after failing to beat a horse home in his last two starts. SPANISH CRUISE hasn't run over fences for 18 months but has been in decent form over timber and is probably well handicapped at present. Providing his jumping holds up, David Pipe's grey should take all the beating in this.
