In depth

Verdict

Daulys Anthem has been placed in both runs over fences so far but was still beaten more than 20 lengths over course and distance last time. REPLACEMENT PLAN looks the one to be on, despite an indifferent record over the larger obstacles, as his latest third at Worcester hinted that he'd turned a corner. Mac Bertie never seems to run two races alike but Whos De Baby has been getting closer over shorter trips and stayed 3m between the flags.
