None of the four is ruled out and plenty will depend on how the race is run but UBALTIQUE relishes a slog in the mud and still looks on a winning mark despite this being his hat-trick bid, so he may emerge on top late on. The front-running Tara Bridge is probably next best, although Un Beau Roman's huge descent in the weights continues to grab the eye.[Richard Austen]

Now a 10yo but first win was at Stratford last March and his second was at Lingfield last month; both came when front-running in small fields on soft or heavy, all which he should be able to get again today; back up another 7lb but has a major shout.

Won twice in small fields before beaten 15l in two Class 2 handicaps; this race is a lot less demanding again and he acts on soft but hasn't raced on heavy.

Something to prove at this track (third visit) but won at Haydock on last two starts, looking back in top form, and he's still on a decent mark; goes extremely well in the mud and, after looking in trouble, he was strong at the finish for those two wins; hat-trick would not surprise.

Acts on soft, much more to prove on heavy; first and second in 2m Cheltenham handicaps late in 2016; nothing like that form since and the bit of encouragement he gave back at Cheltenham in the autumn preceded a heavy defeat at Ascot but this race is vastly less competitive and he's way down the weights; needs to settle and jump (not fluent last time) but hard to dismiss.
