Paul Townend is reunited with CABLE (NAP) for the first time since Stephen Mahon's four-year-old finished second to Muthaza at the Festival here in July. A repeat of that form would be good enough today. Mr Antolini, who won a bumper in March, has yet to finish out of the frame in three starts over hurdles and should keep up that record in this. Wingoldandwearit already has a fourth to his name over timber and is open to improvement. Allduckornodinner and Charlie Stout have hinted at ability but San Calista may need more time.
