Never out of the frame in three National Hunt bumpers last season, winning one, but left a lasting impression on his first run this term over timber at Chepstow, readily going through the gears when Harry Cobden pressed the button. There’s more to come from this exciting prospect out of Paul Nicholls in-form yard, and he’s the one to beat

Tea Clipper (nb)
It is only a small field for this Grade 2 contest, but it’s a proper race nonetheless. A case can be made for all four, but Tom Lacey’s Tea Clipper showed some tenacity to reel in the useful Fidelio Vallis at Chepstow last month on his chasing bow.
