YOUNG WOLF certainly wasn't winning out of turn at Ludlow and with the third subsequently franking that form with his own chase victory, the Jonjo O'Neill/Richard Johnson representative is fancied to follow up. The Butcher Said has returned an improved animal this year and is the obvious danger following his Huntingdon romp, while King Golan, switching from fences to hurdles, could beat Throckley to third spot.

Morning Royalty, Pretty Miss Mahler and Dartford Warbler all boast course-winning form and are respected, as is Justforjames, who is 4lb higher than when scoring on his latest outing at Catterick in February. However, INCHCOLM has been a model of consistency of late and, despite a further 6lb rise for finishing a neck second at Hexham last time, he rates the one to beat.

Sonic has performed well here in the past, finishing half a length second in a maiden hurdle last June, and must enter calculations on his chasing debut, but preference is for TONTO'S SPIRIT. He boasts two hurdle wins at the Cumbria track and already has some decent fencing form under his belt, chasing home a smart Dan Skelton inmate (subsequently third at Grade 1 level) two starts ago. Carntop is a respected Lambourn raider.

THE KINGS BABY fairly bolted up at Stratford last Sunday and, with Martin McIntyre's valuable claim negating the 7lb penalty, she could take some stopping in her bid to follow up. Bocasien Desbois wasn't beaten far off this mark at Hexham two weeks ago and should give another good account, while Brave Spartacus brings winning C&D form to the table and is certainly no forlorn hope.

Better than ever returning from 11 months off to score readily at Warwick a month ago, though the race lacked depth and he's up 8 lb, so he's potentially vulnerable.
