JUICESTORM VERDICT: Last year’s winner – Milansbar – will be looking to become the first repeat winner of this race and despite being the oldest runner in the field (12) he’s got a live chance again off 6lbs higher. He’ll be better for a recent run at Sandown but really he might want the ground to get a lot softer. The Twiston-Davies yard have won this race once in the past and in Calett Mad and Cogry they’ve two fair chances of going well. Another yard that’s got history in the race is Paul Nicholls with three successes – he runs Ibis Du Rheu and that stable boast a decent 32% record with their chasers at the course. Step Back would be interesting if he’s anywhere near the form that saw him win last season’s Bet365 Gold Cup at Sandown but he’s up 14lbs from that so has a bit to price. However, the two that get in here with light weights and tick a lot of the main trends are DUEL AT DAWN and CAROLE’S DESTRIER. The last-named was a good winner at Newbury and despite his age (11) hails from a yard that have a good record with their chasers here (31%). He’s up just 3lbs for that last win and that success was also a good sign he’s not fallen out of love with the game. Duel At Dawn is better than his showed last time at Haydock but that was his first run back after a break and he can go well too off just 10st 5lbs. He’s been placed in the top two in four of his 6 chase starts and looks well worth a crack over this longer trip.
