made all, drew clear after 4 out, unchallenged after, heavily eased flat
towards rear, reminders after 6th, outpaced 4 out, plugged on to take modest 4th flat, never near leaders

behind, mistake 3rd, struggling 8th, tailed off when pulled up before 3 out
This is a bit of a shocker as none of these are exactly reliable. Chankillo was second last time at Worcester and Blackwood Rover has been placed in his last two starts at Stratford and Fontwell and appears to hold Who Am I and Mahayogin on the form book. But Bob's Legend makes his chasing debut having managed just one win in 28 career starts. THE YANK has a Flat pedigree so might not take to fences but is well enough handicapped to land this if defying his breeding. Go Teescomponents doesn't appear to be progressing but didn't run badly here in June and is 3lb lower.
