Samenerve finally opened his account over fences at Towcester last time. It took him 14 attempts to do so, however, and he's worth taking on off a 10lb higher mark. In contrast, BALLYWATT was making his chasing debut when beaten less than a length in third at Bangor back in May. A chance is taken he can build on that here and he's preferred to Trojan Sun, third at Ludlow last month before disappointing at Bangor last time. For The Staff is another making hard work of landing that elusive first win over fences and the remainder arrive out of sorts.
