A small field here but plenty arrive in decent form in a race that will take plenty of winning. Top-weight Chuvelo was impressive last time out when making all at Bangor and coming home seven lengths clear of his field for a comfortable victory but his stable could be in better form and he needs to improve again to win this deeper contest. Castel Gandolfo is another maiden winner who caught the eye with a smooth success at Fakenham. He looks to be going the right way, as does MAN OF LIGHT, who won his maiden at Bangor by an easy 11l and jumped far better in the main than when unseating at Newton Abbot on his previous start. He looks to be improving rapidly and could well be the one to beat here for trainer Philip Hobbs.
