Minella Rocco is the category act, however this might be onerous below prime weight even after a prep run.
The one I like is Scottish Nationwide hero VICENTE, who’s up simply 4lb for that massive Ayr success. He stays sturdy and ought to be match hailing from the Paul Nicholls yard. Huge journey for Harry Cobden.
The large Gold Cup handicap chase over an prolonged 2m4f comes up at 2.25pm, and LE PREZIEN might be onerous to maintain out the body.
I am unsure about him in a end, and tipped Foxtail Hill to beat him final time which he duly did.
Nonetheless, on this larger subject I anticipate JP McManus’s horse to be held up longer and he may simply have the category to attain.
There is a handicap hurdle over an prolonged 3m1f at three.00pm, and the one I like right here is THOMAS CAMPBELL, who’s up 10lb for a current win however 7lb of that’s negated by way of James Bowen.
This five-year-old is an enhancing teen for Nicky Henderson.

The ITV cameras are also on the Flat at Lingfield, where the 2.45pm is the Listed Churchill Stakes over 1m2f.
The one to back each-way here is Roger Charlton’s AYRAD, who was a bit disappointing last time but who can bounce back to his best here for Richard Kingscote.
