More than half of this field won last time but Karl Marx only landed a seller while Superciliary, who carries a penalty, was allowed an easy lead at Taunton. That's unlikely to happen here as Breaking Bits made all to score at Fontwell when last seen. Seven Summits didn't beat much at Catterick in January and Withy Mills was a 50/1 chance when taking a novices' handicap at Exeter. A P McCoy was on board KETTLEWELL when he won twice at Stratford last summer and again when he was fifth in a jumpers' bumper in January. The five-year-old has run on the all-weather since so won't lack anything in fitness and can take this as Minella Definitely hung all over the track last time and Vikekhal was well beaten on his latest start at Southwell.
