After an encouraging display at Lingfield recently, Tahan may well be ready to win his first race but preference is for last year’s winner SKEAPING, who should be primed to show his best now.
All three are making their chasing debuts so much will depend on how they adapt to the task around this tricky track. That said, it’s not hard to see BIT ON THE SIDE leading her rivals a merry dance. Jubilympics is narrowly preferred to Liffeydale Dreamer for second.
Here Comes Johny has the benefit of a recent outing and should go close but SWITCH HITTER is taken to come out on top in this field of hurdling newcomers.
Young Wolf has several edges over his rivals but if all goes well, SKANDIBURG could take advantage of the 10lb he receives. Canyon City is by no means out of this, either.

The hat-trick may well be on the cards for TAYZAR, who looked in fine form last week despite winning only narrowly in the end. Carys’ Commodity is feared most.
This competitive chase should be run at a good pace and that should suit AS YOU LIKE (nap), who keeps raising his game and comes to this in fine form. Princeton Royale is next best, while blinkers could do the trick for Hepijeu.
Despite his defeat at short odds when last seen in July, MEDALLA DE ORO is still the one to beat and has proved his effectiveness around here. Cormier should have more to offer over hurdles and Dragon Sun is of some interest on his hurdling debut.
