CAPTAIN BLACKPEARL picked up minor money on his first start under Rules over 2m4f at Uttoxeter and is expected to come on for that outing and improve for this drop in distance. Heartbreak Kid should similarly be all the wiser for the experience gained on his hurdles bow at Bangor and is expected to take closer order. The pick of the remainder may be recent Hereford second Ask Himself.

AYE RIGHT was denied a hat-trick when finishing runner-up at Carlisle over 2m4f last time but he's expected to get back on the winning trail now stepping back up in trip. Two For Gold has been raised 6lb for scoring over 2m4f last time but will be hoping this stiffer test could unlock immediate improvement. Coole Hall took a step in the right direction when last seen at Wetherby and is another for the shortlist.

Sandy Thomson looks to make it five in a row in this contest with the lightly-raced CAVENTARA, who tuned up for this with an impressive 10-length victory of a novice handicap chase over three miles here last month. Out of Welsh National winner L'Aventure, he should thrive over this marathon test off a 7lb higher mark. Dr Richard Newland saddles two and it could be No Hassle Hoff, a handy performer when with Dan Skelton, who carries the yard's main hopes on his stable debut. Bafana Blue is foolish to ignore having notched a hat-trick with a commanding 26-length win at Ayr, while Big River could be in a different class to his rivals if putting it all together.
