Western Home looked to be getting the hang of the chasing game when runner-up here last time but it's hard to oppose KINARI in his current impressive sequence. He has had no difficulty in repelling the best efforts of the handicapper to tie his progress down but has been hit with a hefty 11lb rise for his latest win and is now 31lb higher than when landing the first of his winning sequence. We'll stick with him one more time. Sonneofpresenting shaped nicely on chasing debut and rates the obvious improver if his jumping holds up against more battle-hardened chasers and is one for the future after just six career starts whatever his fate here. Dr Moloney is solid but doesn't win too often and the biggest threat to the topweight could well be Heart O Annandale off his featherweight although he does have a quirk or too and Shane Shortall will need to coax and cajole him round.
