Verdict

Calgary Bay won the Great Yorkshire Chase over 3m here last year and has always had a touch of class. Join Together just failed to catch Hello Bud in the Becher Chase at Aintree over this trip in December and is another with decent claims while Ikorodu Road won this last year off a 7lb lower mark. Along with Night In Milan and course specialist Corkage, he wasn't far behind COURT BY SURPRISE here in December and has every chance of reversing the form on better terms but Emma Lavelle's charge gets the nod as he has more scope for improvement and the extra 2f has to be in his favour given the way he finished that day. Mr Moonshine has a bit to find on the form book and Quentin Collonges needs to get back to his best to figure but Mr Moss stays well, though lacks a recent run.
