I think Knot On Time comes out most well in the context of this race. He’s in really solid form around the track and providing his jumping holds up, on what is his first run over fences, he shouldn’t be too far away.
On handicap chase debut Rubiana travelled really well before tiring late on to finish fourth last time out at Punchestown, but that was on soft ground. I think the better ground she’s going to encounter today should really help her see out the race more. She’s a solid each/way selection in what is an open handicap.

Call Me Rocky looks fairly obvious to me in this one. He looked all-out a winner last time at Listowel, but that was over 1m1f on heavy ground, and he eventually got chased down late on in that race. He’s only up 1lb for that effort and Ben Cohen’s taking off a very valuable 3lbs. He looks a horse to beat and he’s ready to win a race of this nature.
