I was a little more confident about Gaillard Du Mesnil under the old rules when he would have carried 5lb less. That will make it more difficult for him. He has the right profile and ran a cracking race behind L’Homme Presse at Cheltenham and will love the extra distance of this 3m 5f trip.

Franco De Port is hard to fancy off top weight even with Jack Foley claiming 5lbs off his back.

If the real Ronald Pump turns up, he’d have a big chance, but he can be a Jekyll and Hyde character. Death Duty ran well in the Ultima Chase at Cheltenham but unseated early in the Aintree Grand National and that could be a blessing in disguise. He looks a major each-way player to me.

Gaillard Du Mesnil
