VARDAS SUPREME gained his only success in 21 starts over fences on heavy going at Newcastle in February and a recent run after a long break will have put him spot-on to take this. Nicks Power made a reasonable start over fences at Worcester but then ran poorly on the same track where he never got involved. Turf Trivia gained his only chase victory over this course and distance in June though that was on good ground and he's given no indication that he acts on testing going. Molko Jack was in the process of running his best race when falling at the last at Sedgefield in March and found 2m5f much too far on his reappearance at Uttoxeter. Radsoc De Sivola is a long way out of the handicap.
