This doesn’t look the hottest renewal of this Grade 1 and he has shown enough to perform at this level.
TAKINGRISKS (3.15 Ayr, nb)
He is a former Scottish Grand National winner so he’ll love this test of stamina.
He came back with a quiet run over hurdles and looked much happier jumping fences in the Rehearsal Chase at Newcastle. He was a close-up fourth there and should have too much quality.
FRIEND OR FOE (3.35 Sandown, treble)
He won on the bridle at Wincanton 18 days ago.
He cruised along under Harry Cobden who barely had to shake the reins to score by 11 lengths.
The ground was testing so he should handle conditions and is capable of taking another step forward.
