Monte Cavallo's defeat of Mr Mulligan at Bangor in May hasn't really worked out but he may have just needed the run when second to Professor Emery at Stratford at the start of the month and is preferred to Esporao, gifted a beginners' chase at Clonmel in June. The latter only won a selling hurdle at Perth last time. Nigel Twiston-Davies is trying The Cockney Mackem again over fences after eight previous attempts. He may find at least one too good again with CANADIAN DIAMOND getting the nod. Brendan Powell's charge goes well fresh so a recent break isn't a concern and he has a big chance at the weights if translating his hurdles form to the larger obstacles.
