Verdict

King's Grace may not have lasted home over 3m2f at Carlisle last time and should do better over this shorter trip - he remains unexposed. Milans Well caused an upset on his chasing bow at Wincanton and a literal interpretation of that form would give him a big chance here off a mark of 101 while Ballyhilty Bridge has been placed a couple of times over the larger obstacles. BADGERS COVE was no match for Sydney Paget here last month but was clear of the third and, as that was only his third start over fences, he gets the nod ahead of the consistent Musical Wedge.
