Verdict

Lets Get Serious looked a natural chaser when scoring on his debut at Doncaster but this is a big ask under top weight. Blenheim Brook was only beaten a neck over 3m here last time but has gone up 4lb since and this looks a better race. Niceonefrankie has struggled to match last season's exploits so far this term but should be winning soon and makes more appeal than Bocciani and Eurohunter, while this may be too competitive for course specialist Red Tanber. SWIFT ARROW may be up the task, however, as he's improving at a rate of knots and should appreciate the extra half-mile as he won over 3m between the flags. His defeat of Hazy Tom here last time looks very decent form.
