A wide-open staying handicap chase with the vote in favour of BIG DIFFERENCE. A low-mileage 6-y-o, he has twice shaped well in hitting the frame this season and the return to this marathon trip may well unlock further progress from Ben Pauling's charge. Sizing Cusimano and Lithic can also get involved, whilst Some Detail is also worth a look now faced with a thorough test of stamina.
