Verdict

Modus was fancied for the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham but was forced to race wide throughout and his exertions told in the closing stages. With better luck in-running, he should be a factor here while A P McCoy rode Relic Rock to victory at Wetherby in February and is back on board after Richard Johnson steered the six-year-old to success at Uttoxeter. Aqalim and Uncle Muf are both two from two and the older Ballybolley and Battle Born are also chasing hat-tricks. Barry Geraghty has chosen Polytrack winner Bringithomeminty ahead of Clondaw Banker and Hunters Hoof but this is an ultra-competitive affair. Despite being hampered and running green, PUISQUE TU PARS went readily clear of McCabe Creek over 1m4f at Newbury on his debut. There is more to come and, as his yard won this in 2010, he's taken to outpace his rivals.
