Clan Legend beat Riders Onthe Storm in an incident-packed renewal of this last year but the weights favour the runner-up today. Knight In Dubai was a fair second at Bangor last month but has not managed a place here in three previous visits. Schiehallion Munro is not out of this but probably most effective at Wetherby while Elvis Mail has done all of his winning north of the border. Kiltealy Briggs was more like his old self at Market Rasen in October and Brave Seasca was highly tried after completing a hat-trick in handicaps at the start of the year but GUNSIGHT RIDGE wasn’t stopping over 2m here four weeks ago and he does have form over this sort of trip.
