In depth


Bellator Good run behind Celibate on seasonal reappearance. Has been running in the finest company respectable last season but looks to have it all to do at these weights and prefers softer ground.

Kingsmark (IRE) Won this race last year, relatively lightly raced and was an impressive winner of the Mitsubishi Shogun race at Aintree, but subsequently disappointing in the Whitbred. Makes his seasonal debut; if back to his best form then must take a hand.

Behrajan (IRE) Making his debut in Handicap company, won three Novice Chases last season (two easily). Second to Hati Roy at Cheltenham. If he lives up to early promise then a class act; only concern is may need the run.

Flying Instructor Won the De Vere Handicap Chase over 2m4f last season , proves he stays the trip when winning over 3m1f in May. Well beaten in the Charlie Hall and likely to find others better.

Frantic Tan (IRE) Won the De Vere Gold Cup over 3m4f last season. Prefers the softer ground and making his seasonal reappearance having struggled off his handicap mark towards the end of last season.

Banker Count 8L victory over Redemption at this trip on seasonal reappearance. Stable in great form and at these weights has every chance.
