Faced with a field of newcomers, we'll have to trust the betting market to indicate which of these have been showing up well at home. It's likely Paul Nicholls' Noble Friend, who is by Presenting, will know his job and the pedigrees of both Take The Mick and Westward Point suggest they'll be able to win races. Mr Bellamy and Woodpole Academy are others representing powerful NH yards but you wouldn't go far wrong if following Milan's progeny in the jumping sphere and MEGZZAMS BOY could be another winner for his prolific sire. Kielan Woods takes off a valuable 5lb here and he gets the vote ahead of stablemate Catch The Rhythm and the others.
