was a very creditable second over C&D on his penultimate start and is much better than he showed last time out (over hurdles). The return to this course and reverting to chasing could be key and he's worth another chance in a race of this nature; especially given the run of good form shown by recent runners from his yard. New Millennium
has a good attitude and might be perked up by the application of blinkers for the first time. He can make this a good test for the selection. As can Mercian King
, who is another coming back to chasing and cannot be ruled out when the pick of his form is taken into account.
