Verdict

A P McCoy could be the ideal partner for the bold-jumping FRANKIE FIGG, who ran his rivals silly when making most in the Grand Sefton over 2m6f at Aintree a year ago. He goes well fresh so an absence since April isn't a concern and he's probably the one to beat. Rougham also likes to dominate but struggles to stay this far, while Fruity O'Rooney faces no easy task on his handicap debut over fences. Midnight Appeal never stopped improving in the spring, however, while Roudoudou Ville has more options this season after showing he stayed a longer trip when second to Door Boy at Perth in April.
