Havingotascoobydo is back in the right grade but has his stamina to prove over this trip. Buck's Bond stays well but has become disappointing while Allthekingshorses has his first run since falling at Newbury in January, though has only had three runs over fences. UPHAM ATOM has stamina in abundance and appears oblivious to the state of the going. Though still 4lb higher than when scoring over 3m5f at Taunton in March, he'll have needed last week's run over hurdles at Newbury and can get back to winning ways here. Inside Dealer usually runs well here but ran poorly at Ludlow last time and is now tried in blinkers. Shockingtimes was an early casualty at Ascot last month but is still preferred to Goring One of the others.
