Cap Elorn recorded a double at Worcester in July and is upped in grade off a higher mark for this while Chilbury Hill won a selling hurdle at the same track last time but is 12lb higher than when last scoring over fences. Lauberhorn has yet to win a chase though he went close to doing so at Newton Abbot last month but the tentative vote goes to FIFTYONEFIFTYONE. John Cornwall's charge is not the most consistent but is capable of landing this with a repeat of his earlier second in a tougher race than this at Cartmel where he finished well clear of the third.
