DUHALLOW GESTURE took advantage of a drop in class to win easily at Fontwell last time and could still be ahead of the assessor off a mark of 131. The seven-year-old should just about stay this extra furlong or so and appeals more than Aimee De Sivola, who is still a maiden over hurdles and proving hard to win with, and Rubytwo, who is consistent and should enjoy stepping back up in distance.

Cause Toujours has found one too good on the last three occasions and doubts remain over his resolution at the finish, while Hijran has won with a bit in hand the last twice but might want easier ground than this ideally. The most appealing option is CUBSWIN, who enjoyed the run of the race when winning a decent handicap at Wincanton recently. Richard Johnson rides once more and a 4lb rise doesn't look too harsh.

The Paddy Pie hasn't finished outside of the first two on his last four starts and could find something extra now back up in trip, while Uhlan Bute returned to form when outrunning his odds to finish fourth at Ascot 20 days ago. It is hard to ignore the unexposed QUARENTA, though, who has twice won at Warwick by fine margins this season. A 5lb rise from last time doesn't look too harsh and a sound surface is clearly essential for him.
