Verdict

It's Like That wasn't beaten far at Haydock last month but has gone back up in the weights again, though is still preferred to stablemate Valley View who has a bit to prove at present. Crystal Prince was beaten off a lower mark at Fontwell last month while Smokey George is making his debut over the larger obstacles and may need the experience. Noble Witness was put up 8lb after springing a surprise over C&D earlier this month but is lightly raced under Rules and could be capable of better, though we still prefer EPEE CELESTE. Willie Twiston-Davies' claim more than makes up for the 5lb he was put up after finishing a close second at Exeter and a similar performance should suffice here.
