2pts win CHICAGO GREY 11/2 (Ladbrokes and Coral) Rewards4Racing Handicap Chase
1pt win BALTHAZAR KING 11/1(Generally available) Rewards4Racing Handicap Chase

Chicago Grey shaped realy well in the Charlie Hall last time and will be absolutely spot on for this. He has plenty of useful course form, stays forever, and his run when unseating his rider late on here last month shows that he remains on a competitive mark.

Balthazaar King won the October race. He was then below his best at Ascot last time but has shown his best form here and should give a very good account of himself.

Lost - 3pts

2pts win WISHFUL THINKING 6/1 (Generally available) Paddy Power Gold Cup
1pt win GREAT ENDEAVOUR 12/1 (Generally available) Paddy Power Gold Cup

Wishful Thinking went from strength to strength in the spring and may not have stopped progressing. He is sure to be fully tuned up for this, and has the class to defy a career high rating.

Great Endeavour showed his runing to be all wrong in this race last year when going close in the big December handicap. He runs off the same rating today, his yard is flying at the moment, and he just cannot be left out here.

G Endeavour won + 10pts
