Trainer Kerry Lee is in very good form at the moment operating at a 33% strike-rate, plus her last two runners have won so I’m keen to side with the Richard Patrick ridden horse Destined To Shine. That was a good run at Wetherby last time, has no problem with bad ground as he showed when winning at Chepstow, so gets the nod here over Not Available.

JP McManus’ mare has been a star for connections, and if she were to win this contest, it would take her to the verge of breaking the million pound earnings barrier. That gives you an idea of the level. she has been operating at.

She has finished second to Constitution Hill in both starts this season, but she is proven in soft ground which is a plus and this looks a really good opportunity for her.

I Like To Move It was disappointing in the Relkeel. Maybe it was the trip, but I’m not convinced this track is right up his street either even though Nigel Twiston-Davies would love to win this race named after his stable star.

The temptation was to go with Bristol De Mai, however, carrying 11 stone 12 on this ground is going to be very hard work and I just feel the Venetia Williams trained mare in receipt of a stone and three has to be the selection at the track that she likes.

This five-year-old really enjoyed the step up in trip at Aintree last time, and this sort of test looks perfect for him.

The further he went, the better he went at Aintree last time plus he coped with bad ground at Lingfield behind Authorised Speed. De Legislator for Lucinda Russell is the obvious danger. He revelled in conditions when winning on heavy at Kelso last time.

The temptation was to go with Stellar Magic but Philip Hobbs is on the cold list at the mo!

Trainer Alex Hales bought this horse from Ireland and he ran a very good race behind Twinjets at Leicester backed up when winning at the same track in December and if he can cope with bad grounds at Leicester, he can cope with Haydock.
