Chac Du Cadran and Requin are both well handicapped but have had their problems this season. The Musical Guy has never fulfilled early potential while Green Bank returns from a lay-off but Mighty Mobb and Be Definite are usually thereabouts and the former may improve a little for the fitting of a visor. THOMAS WILD was a lucky winner at Exeter in February but gave the in-form Benbens a fright at Wincanton subsequently and there's no reason why he won't run his race again with Micheal Nolan's claim a plus.
