In-form mare who finally shed her maiden tag in a 7-runner handicap chase at Fontwell recently. Should give her all again, but a 4 lb rise might do for her up against less-exposed rivals.

Unexposed and has taken off over fences lately, forging clear to score by a wide margin once more here 16 days ago. Every chance he'll land the C&D hat-trick.

MOVETHECHAINS has bolted up over C&D the last twice and, while the handicapper has now had his say, it's tough to oppose this improving 7-y-o. Robins Field looks a fascinating contender starting out for Dan Skelton, and Getastar is expected to up his game now switched to the larger obstacles.
