Verdict

Chase Gate won over 2m6f here in May but this longer trip might be a problem. It won't bother MONTY'S REVENGE, however, as he's won over track and trip in the past and is 4lb lower than when successful over 3m1f at Towcester last winter. We'll take the view that he needed his comeback run at Worcester and give him a tentative vote. Health Is Wealth has his sights lowered and is a danger but Minella Bliss has shown little so far over fences and the other pair have a lot to prove.
