CAPTAIN GEORGE represents a handler with a 7-31 record here in the last five years and looks set to go well in this company back in the National Hunt sphere. He is fit after a decent spell on the Flat, which included a 20-1 success at Wolverhampton in February, and he should be suited by this drying ground under Nick Schofield off a fair mark. Iniesta represents the same yard but might be a bit too high in the handicap, while Goldslinger is another to note.

WITH DISCRETION was an easy winner at Towcester during a week when the eyes of the racing world were focused on the Cheltenham Festival, and Nicky Henderson's charge can continue her progress assuming she avoids the 'bounce' factor on just her second run in three years. Dinos Benefit should appreciate this return to better ground up in distance, while Drill Baby Drill showed promise when second at Haydock on debut last time and looks open to improvement.

Front-runner MARRACUDJA did it well in the Scottish Champion Chase at Musselburgh when last seen and has been found a nice opening by Paul Nicholls to win again. The seven-year-old course winner got on well with Bryony Frost on that occasion and her presence in the saddle could prove crucial once more. Some Buckle did win after a break last season and has the form to pose the selection a few problems, while Dusky Lark is another who could claim some minor money.

Paul Nicholls has won six of the last seven renewals of this prize and SAO is fancied to get off the mark on British soil at the third time of asking. A half-brother to the talented Frodon, he failed to settle when fourth at Kempton last time so it is no surprise to see a tongue-tie added to his hood which has failed to work the last twice. This isn't a strong race, with Torrent Des Mottes and Rooster Cogburn the most likely dangers.
