A case can be made for lots of these but the most persuasive one is TEA CLIPPER who continued his progression with a most likeable winning return in Chepstow's Silver Trophy and is taken to make light of a 7 lb rise here. Handicap debutant On The Wild Side is another with better days ahead of him so rates the chief threat, although Hang In There is weighted to have a big say if back on song.
Champion Hurdle heroine EPATANTE should be hard to beat after a gallop at Newbury last week. The race-fit and in-form Sceau Royal is the obvious one to take advantage should Nicky Henderson's brilliant mare not be on her game. The unexposed Ribble Valley is an interesting outsider.
If all is well the sky is the limit for the unbeaten MARIE'S ROCK and she can make a successful return before having her sights raised. Botox Has is another who looks better than a handicapper and is set for a big run after his ready Cheltenham victory. Sebastopol is also worth a look.
A cracking renewal. AYE RIGHT leaves the impression he may have an even bigger performance in him now racing beyond 3m for the first time over fences and can become the first Scottish-trained winner since 1979. Secret Investor rates a big threat after his impressive defeat of Potterman at Chepstow. Kim Bailey pair Vinndication and Two For Gold are two of many others who could go well..
WHATMORE is still getting better as a chaser and finished to good effect when a clear second in a handicap at Ascot on return, so he boasts excellent claims. Pym also makes plenty of appeal on the back of a listed success and Definitly Red shouldn't be discounted now the cheekpieces are back on.
IBLEO's chasing profile is all positive and he hasn't finished improving yet judged on his excellent second at Ascot on return 4 weeks ago, collared in the dying strides by a race-fit rival. Moonlighter was only just worn down by a high-class prospect in the Haldon Gold Cup at Exeter so rates an obvious threat, while the return to a flatter track will suit Hatcher.
