CHATO was visually impressive when making a winning debut at Uttoxeter. He may be a cut above the usual standard of bumper winners at this time of year and is a confident selection to defy his penalty. As The Crow Flies got a bit outpaced at Perth but recent rain will have helped his cause. Hag Stone was second at Carlisle but beaten 10 lengths and Tipperary fourth Muilean Na Madog and the returning Loud And Clear also have each-way claims.
