Burst onto the scene with a dominant seventeen-length victory in this race last year. Claimed the scalp of Altior on his reappearance, and although slightly disappointing in the King George latest, he is firmly the one to beat back at his favourite track.
King George came too soon latest; hard to beat on C&D wins in this and on reappearance

Ran some fine races in defeat in competitive handicaps last season, and he made a winning start to this campaign when taking the Haldon Gold Cup at Exeter in November. Has posted regressive RPR’s in his three starts since though; vulnerable.
On best form, this smart chaser would have good chance of chasing Cyrname home

C&D Winner - Won before on this course at this distance
Cold Recent Form Jockey - 1 wins from 24 in the last 14 days (4%)
Had some useful form to his name in Ireland last year, and he has won both starts since joining this yard; seven-length course and distance winner latest. The main threat to Cyrname, albeit likely to come up short should that rival bring his A-game.
Up-and-coming 7yo who is a live forecast contender behind clear form pick Cyrname

Winner of a competitive Grade 3 handicap chase at this venue when last seen back in November 2018. This is a tough comeback assignment though, with his record in Grade 1 company currently reading 0-8.
Won good 3m handicap here 15 months ago; this is much harder on first run since
