TACTICAL MANOEUVRE couldn't justify a short price over fences on his Fontwell comeback, but proved he is far happier over the smaller obstacles when winning in gritty fashion at Exeter. He has gone up 7lb but Jeremy Scott should be able to get more out of him. His former stablemate Truckers Tangle was a costly failure at Fontwell but it is too soon to write him off. Amzac Magic remains on a workable mark, and Flanagans Field can't be ruled out either.

Generally below par since latest success at Newton Abbot in May 2018 and last month's effort at Bangor was particularly uninspiring.

Winner of five hurdle races from 2m to 2m 1f on ground varying from good to soft. Pulled up 2 out when 25-1 at Bangor-on-Dee over 2m 1f (heavy) in a hurdle race won by Baratineur in December last year on his latest outing.

Money for Golden Jeffrey on his first start for David Pipe would be interesting, as he has also had wind surgery, but a safer option is KARAKORAM. The Grace Harris-trained five-year-old beat all bar a bang-in-form rival at Plumpton and is fancied to go one better. Jackson Hill has yet to get his head in front but he has been nothing if not consistent in defeat. Poucor has to enter the reckoning as well.

SHANG TANG came up short in the hot Cheltenham race won by the exciting Chantry House, but he previously chased home the 134-rated Getaway Fred at Chepstow and a reproduction of that form may well be good enough. Getaway Fred's trainer Colin Tizzard again provides the main stumbling block, this time in the shape of Ascot third Butterwick Brook. Former Tizzard inmate Oscars Moonshine didn't pull up any trees on his debut for Paul Nicholls, but he should step forward from it.
