Last month's Towcester runner-up KILVERGAN BOY doesn't win very often but is one of few arriving in form here and will almost certainly be involved in the finish. The danger may be Or Sing About, though he was struggling when parting company with his amateur rider at Plumpton last time. Legendary Hop didn't look a natural jumper of fences at Wetherby while none of the others have shown enough lately to suggest they'll be winning anytime soon.
