Another tricky puzzle to solve with Troy Tempest and Lost Glory both bidding to bounce back from disappointing efforts last time. Bold Perk has been alternating between fences and hurdles with great effect but the handicapper may have got to grips with David Pipe's nine-year-old now. Rowdy Rampage boasts a cracking record in point-to-points in Ireland and it's interesting that Paul Nicholls has plunged him straight into handicap company. He could be well treated while it's too soon write off either Marleybow or Nothingbutthetruth. But we are going to stick with Evan Williams' COLD HARBOUR, who has been much-improved of late and was given a good ride by claimer Barry Browne to win over C&D last month. He can defy the weight rise.
