Based on pedigree alone, TULIN would be right at home among the Ballydoyle blueboods, but the ex-French son of Gleneagles has a bright future at this game judging by his successful UK debut over C&D last month. He saw off a useful yardstick on that occasion and can take his next step up the ladder. Castel Gandolfo has shown potential on the level and in this sphere, and he should step forward from his spin in a Kempton jumpers' bumper. Top Power and Monete can fight it out for third.

Grooveur left all previous form behind when triumphant at Ludlow last week, but he isn't guaranteed to repeat that and a penalty further complicates matters. Blazing Saddles also arrives on the back of a breakthrough jumping success, which came at Stratford, but the vote goes to CHEZ HANS. Paul Nicholls' five-year-old has hit the crossbar twice over the extended 2m here, and this extra yardage could be just what he needs. Opine and Passing Shadow aren't out of it either.

Karakoram was fancied to perform much better than he did at Chepstow, and it will be interesting to see if the money comes for him again. Eva's Diva let down favourite-backers at Musselburgh but was a bit better at Sedgefield subsequently, while Motdepas showed up well for a long way over 2m3f here and will appreciate the drop in trip. SAN AGUSTIN hasn't shown too much to get excited about but, as a result, he makes his handicap debut off a mark of just 100 and gets the nod in a contest that may not take much winning.

Fairly useful on the Flat, which makes his opening mark look appealing despite limited promise over hurdles to this point. Better ground should suit, so he's worth monitoring in the betting.
