THE BIG BITE wasn't convincing in the jumping department at Doncaster, but he got the job done and that confidence-boosting success may have given him the impetus to kick on. Open to more improvement in this sphere and potentially well treated off 138, the course winner can go well again from the front and prove too good for the likes of Musical Slave and Glinger Flame.

THE WORLDS END was game in beating L'ami Serge in the Grade 1 Marsh Hurdle at Ascot before Christmas and, despite carrying a penalty in this Grade 2, should prove too strong for these rivals if reproducing that level of performance. Emitom is entitled to have come forward for his spin in the Relkeel at Cheltenham and is the main danger ahead of West Approach.

SIR PSYCHO was impressive at Exeter last time and, if he's improved again since, the Zoffany gelding should be up to the task back in against juveniles. He beat his elders with some authority on New Year's Day and everything points to another bold showing. The French raider Rockadenn will appreciate the deep ground and must be respected, while chances are also given to Gerolamo Cardano and The Pink'n.

Lord Du Mesnil racked up a quick-fire hat-trick towards the end of 2019, culminating in a C&D triumph in the mud. A stamina-sapping slog is clearly what he wants but he faces a different calibre of opposition now, with YALA ENKI chief among them. Last year's Gold Cup seventh has made a bright start to life with Paul Nicholls, winning at Taunton after finishing ahead of The Two Amigos and Elegant Escape when third in the Welsh National. Vintage Clouds ran out a decisive winner of the Peter Marsh here, with Geronimo third, but was a long way behind Lord Du Mesnil prior to that.
