Felix de Giles
C E Longsdon

Placed in two chases from ten starts. Beaten 9l by Try Catch Me when second of 8 at 6-1 on his latest outing in a chase at Fontwell over 2m 2f (good) last month.

Race Verdict

It could pay to side with the bottom-weight JOLIBOB. Although the forecast ground is a concern, he showed he's in good heart when runner-up at Fontwell last time and the application of first-time cheekpieces this afternoon may help him record a first career success. Molko Jack has winning form on heavy ground (over hurdles) and would have every chance if recapturing the form of his Southwell third two starts ago, while Betty Browneyes, the only chase winner in the line-up, certainly isn't out of it either.

Selection: Jolibob        Danger: Betty Browneyes        Alternative: Molko Jack
