Verdict

Having travelled strongly, BELLVANO found nothing when push came to shove at Newbury last time and was outbattled by Cedre Bleu. That's not the first time that Nicky Henderson's charge has let his supporters down over fences and the long run-in here is a worry but he has the best form in the race and is given a chance to make amends. Kings Grey is the one most likely to take advantage should the selection falter again as he's run well in handicaps since winning at Newcastle in November. Maggio stays further so may be suited if last month's Catterick runner-up Laterly adopts his usual front-running role
