Kitchapoly (9/4), Jackthejourneyman (11/4), Vodka Wells (11/4), Deauville Dancer (10/3), River Purple (25/1)

Verdict

None of these are totally discounted but the suggestion is KITCHAPOLY. This horse goes for the Skelton brothers having been very unlucky not to win a race since September 2014, with a number of close battles ending in narrow defeat. The drop to 2m is a slight question mark, it must be said, but Dan Skelton is usually a quality judge of which races his horses should be running in and so hopefully it should bring out the best in him. Vodka Wells has thrived since returning to fences and is preferred next, ahead of Deauville Dancer, second on his chase debut last time.
