Verdict

DISCOVERY BAY is consistent and looks capable of scoring off his current mark. He found one too good again at Musselburgh a fortnight ago but this doesn't look any tougher and he gets the nod. Nicky Henderson has a good record in this so French import Hammersly Lake is expected to go well despite having his first start since 2011. Population gets a change of headgear after placing on his last three outings and is preferred to recent Taunton winner Brinestine. Milord was still beaten a distance when runner-up at Uttoxeter and Dunraven Storm makes more appeal after a recent pipe-opener over track and trip as he's tumbled down the weights of late.
