CHRYSANDER is a potent weapon in this grade and has already scored twice at Taunton since the turn of the year. He found the company much too hot at Ludlow last time but can return to winning ways here. Flichity showed promise at a higher level in the autumn but it remains to be seen how he reacts to a fall over fences at Catterick recently and he's giving 14lb to the selection. Le Corvee has been a bit below par lately while Cursum Perficio was beaten in a seller at Ludlow last time. But there are possibilities about the four-year-old Miereveld, even though he could only finish third at Haydock on Wednesday.
