Mi Capricho did well last year, winning three times. He has also won twice here in the past so has to be of interest on his reappearance along with Twilight Secret, who is less exposed but has changed stables since winning in this grade at Wolverhampton in September. SIR MAXI, however, may enjoy a fitness advantage over both having had a pipe-opener at Catterick. Ramon Di Loria has switched from Tracey Collins to Ewan Whillans but wouldn’t be without a chance and makes more appeal than Liam Bailey’s pair Three Saints Bay and Fanzone.
