Verdict

The Chazer won over this trip at Doncaster in February but is still 5lb higher. Stablemate Big News makes his seasonal reappearance and Smoking Aces has an even longer absence to overcome and probably needs further than this. RENARD's run behind Johns Spirit at Cheltenham in October was a decent effort and he may not have been suited by the drop back to 2m next time. Venetia Williams' charge has a good record around here and can get back to winning ways. Thunderstorm, fifth on his chasing debut at Ascot, may need more time so Timesawastin and Special Account could be the pick of the remainder.
