Verdict

This looks a competitive affair and it should be run at a good pace as several of these like to be at the head of affairs. Wessex King and Hell's Bay were both ridden aggressively over a shorter trip at Cheltenham last time. The former eventually finished third after the latter unseated his rider. Dineur steps up in distance after winning over 2m at Ffos Las but is still preferred to Raduis Bleu, who only scraped home at the same track and is 7lb higher now. LARKS LAD is only 3lb higher than when successful the last time he raced over this trip on good ground. He could pounce late to land this with Have You Seen Me and Henry San possibly the pick of the remainder.
