POST CHAISE (NAP) is another good chance on the card for connections after his pleasing fencing debut at Hereford over a staying trip. He's up 8lb as a result but his stable clearly feel chasing is his game and the winning pointer can supplement those gains. Largy Nights has taken well to fences with a win and a two runner-up efforts from his last three starts, including a good run over course and distance last time. He, too, should play a prominent role despite a 4lb rise for that latest defeat. Enduring Love has picked up place money on both starts since joining Olly Murphy from Ireland and there's no reason why he shouldn't give another solid account off his unchanged mark. Just A Deal has only been seen once since scoring at Southwell in April and would be of interest if back to his best.
