Just The Man should be seen to good effect here and he was just 4lbs lighter when winning with a bit up his sleeve at Ludlow earlier in the season. However, BLACK POPPY (nap) showed enough promise behind some clever Nicky Henderson novices to believe he may have made a successful handicap debut. Maninsane and Gambia Tiep are other interesting ones in what is probably a good handicap for the grade.

Zestful Hope may need more than when third at Catterick. Conqueror Down Royal of Perryville has progressed to better things, but preference goes to KAYF TAOI, the fourth of which in a Taunton bumper reads well enough and a subsequent pause suggests all might not have been well when he disappointed at Ffos Las.

Torigni still doesn’t seem like the safest way to travel over fences and Orrisdale would probably prefer softer ground, at least on this trip anyway. BATTING SWITCH was stopped in his tracks by a serious mistake at Ludlow and never really recovered. He wins preference over Orrisdale.

With everyone having questions to answer after their last few runs, a chance is taken that KAUTO LA KING can last at home on more suitable ground than when testing 3m for the first time in Kempton. Powerstown Park is second best.

Good deals can be made for the remaining three runners and tactics will be crucial, as ERITAGE and Prince Escalus have both left the front before. Eritage will probably insist on being in the lead and it may well stay there. Prince Escalus is the most feared, although Mr. Lecoq must also be considered.

Last season’s Aintree hero Cousin Pascal is set to put on a bold show but concede weight to the young gun STRATAGEM seems like a big question, with the selection having some class about it. Marcle Ridge and Solomon Gray also enter the equation.

Sweet Auburn has form in the book and could be useful, but the four newcomers are interesting. TREEFINCH receives a lot of weight from the penalized winner and the latter’s half-sister, Hillfinch, made a winning debut for the same trainer-jockey combination earlier in the season. Minniemum will stay much further, but she has trained well at Ffos Las and is getting professional management this time.
