The Nigel Twiston-Davies-trained Lord Maizey has done little wrong since being switched to fences, winning his last two, but he may find the concession of so much weight to Waterlaw beyond him. The selection showed much improved form on his second start since joining Martin Pipe at Wincanton on Boxing Day, going clear from the 13th fence and winning easily. A 7lb penalty for that should not stop the son of Kahyasi with a second run in quick succession more of a worry. The Venetia Williams-trained Kock de La Vesvre looks to be running into some form if judged by his last time out second behind Jakari at Ascot. Lord Maizey has more to do under a 7lb penalty than when winning at Chepstow last week, especially as he was a fortuitous winner that day and of more interest could be Henry Daly's Lord Moose, who makes his seasonal reappearance of a fair mark. He has claims if fit enough but, in receipt of weight from all of his rivals, Waterlaw has to be the selection to supplement his Wincanton success.
