EDMUND KEAN has to concede weight to his four rivals but he won nicely on his debut over fences and should improve further. He'll get every inch of this trip but stamina may be an issue for The Romford Pele. A P McCoy's mount is the form pick on three runs behind smart novice chasers but he looked a non-stayer when tried over 3m1f over hurdles at Newbury last year. Wilton Milan's chase career to date has been blighted by errors and Shays River's form figures are also littered with letters rather than numbers but the mare Miss Milborne may be suited by going right-handed and should have learned plenty from last month's run at Newbury.
