At The Races Verdict

CALIVIGNY romped to a 12-length victory on heavy ground at Ayr when seen over hurdles and that outing is likely to have set the 10-year-old up perfectly for a return to fences here off what looks a winnable figure. Twasn't The Plan has been rattling the crossbar with regularity this year and has to be taken seriously, as does C&D winner Instant Replay, who lowers his sights after contesting a 0-130 at Kelso.

Timeform Verdict

CALIVIGNY scored in some style over hurdles at Ayr last month so he is hard to oppose here back over fences off just a 5 lb higher mark than for that wide-margin victory. Twasn't The Plan arrives in top form but could be set for yet another second spot, with Manwell also highly respected after his recent fourth.
