Plenty in with a chance in the best race on the card but we'll take a punt on the enigmatic GO AMWELL, who is only 6lb higher than when trouncing today's rivals Pheidias and Carmela Maria on similar going over C&D in November. He should go close if Lucy Alexander can coax the best out of him. Quiamo Malta looks as though he's beginning to find his feet for Barry Leavy while Roger Curtis' mare Elegant Olive runs her best races here, though is on a career-high mark. The booking of Timmy Murphy for last month's Towcester third Mr One Too catches the eye and he's another to consider but it's a long time since Rory Boy won over hurdles and he may struggle to concede weight all round.
