LEG 1 Milan Tino
Was thrown into the deep end on both runs in France where he was placed in a Listed and then a Grade 2 contest at Auteuil when making his debut in the famous JP McManus silks.
That’s much the best form on show here and his proven stamina will be an asset up the famous hill.
LEG 2 Tea Clipper, Brampton Belle
TEA CLIPPER put in an encouraging effort when second on comeback at Chepstow last month. He stayed well and should be fitter for the experience.
He’s now 11lb lower than when sixth in the Ultima at the Festival and that makes him competitive with trainer Tom Lacey in decent form.
Henry De Bromhead did well at the last Cheltenham meeting and has solid claims with Brampton Belle.
She has useful amateur John Gleeson on board and she was a solid third on comeback at Galway.
LEG 3 Broadway Boy, Mister Coffey
BROADWAY BOY did well to get within three lengths of Flooring Porter here last time having to give the dual Stayers’ Hurdle winner weight. He jumped well in the main given it was only his second spin over fences and he can see out this trip. There should be more to come.
Mister Coffey has lots of ability but this is his tenth run over fences and he’s yet to score.
He was a good third in the National Hunt Chase here despite the trip stretching his stamina and this challenge should suit better.
LEG 4 Unexpected Party, The Real Whacker
UNEXPECTED PARTY clocked a big personal best over fences when beating potential star Knappers Hill at Chepstow on return last month.
He looks on a fair handicap mark and he went close in a novice contest over this course and distance last season. He goes on any ground and can improve again.
The Real Whacker showed his class when winning the Brown Advisory at the Festival when fighting off Gerri Colombe.
That means he has to give weight away all round here and needed his first run last season. He’s still a major player thanks to his brilliant jumping but he has even bigger targets this term.
LEG 5 Judicial Law, Buddy One
JUDICIAL LAW ran a cracker upped to this trip when a fast-finishing second here last time out. He has been hiked a fair 3lb for that excellent effort and goes on any ground.
It’s a long time since he ran a poor race and should still be improving as a six-year-old.
Buddy One was a good third in the Martin Pipe at the Festival and has comes here on the back of a good win at Galway.
He tries this distance for the first time but he wasn’t stopping over 2m6f latest so should get home.
LEG 6 Resplendent Grey, Springwell Bay
RESPLENDENT GREY was useful in novice ranks last season and did well behind the highly-rated Captain Teague on comeback at Chepstow.
That was in the Grade 2 Persian War where he was clearly best of the rest. He has a fair weight for this handicap debut and should improve for this step up in distance.
Springwell Bay was found out in the highest class at Aintree in April but that came at the end of a long season.
He was a good third on this card 12 months ago and rates the biggest danger.
