THE UNIT was deemed good enough to run in a Grade 2 at Kempton earlier this year and he sets a high form standard. The seven-year-old travelled much the best in victory back over fences at Hexham last time and should have too much for chasing debutant Drinks Interval, who receives the mares allowance. Mister Mister could fare best of the remaining trio.
Prediction : 1st The Unit 2nd Drinks Interval 3rd Mister Mister

MILL GREEN made a winning hurdles debut over the extended 2m3f at Fontwell and should do better now stepped up even further in distance. He wasn't perfect over the sticks there, but looks sure to improve and has plenty of stamina on his dam's side of the family. Minella Mojo is open to improvement on just his second start for Chris Down, while powerful connections persist with Bubble O'clock, who hasn't beaten many home in his career so far.
Prediction : 1st Mill Green 2nd Minella Mojo 3rd Bubble Oclock

TEMPESTATEFLORESCO made a pleasing reappearance when fourth in a 2m7f hurdle race at Worcester before finding the Queen Alexandra at Royal Ascot too hot to handle. This represents much calmer shores for Colin Tizzard's 10-year-old and he can win again now stepping back up in trip over fences. Petrou represents a trainer/jockey combination that have been in great form throughout the summer, while Mighty Leader often goes well at this time of year but needs improvement now upped in class.
Prediction : 1st Tempestatefloresco 2nd Petrou 3rd Mighty Leader

SEDGEMOOR EXPRESS was below par on his first run in a handicap for over three years when finishing last over fences at Market Rasen, but returning to hurdles off 5lb lower could see the 10-year-old return to his usual consistency. Rise Of An Empire broke blood vessels at Wincanton back in May but the son of Stowaway could be freshened up after a 60-day absence, while Lord Topper looks best of the remainder in first-time blinkers.
Prediction : 1st Sedgemoor Express 2nd Rise Of An Empire 3rd Lord Topper

ANGE DES MALBERAUX has moved from James Ewart to Dan Skelton since his last start and the gelding has several upcoming entries, which could suggest he is going well enough at home for him to rack up a potential sequence. A first-time tongue-tie also could bring about further improvement. Borak arrives in search of a hat-trick and is respected despite climbing another 4lb in the ratings, while Sweeping Rock may have benefited from a wind operation since his last outing.
Prediction : 1st Ange Des Malberaux 2nd Borak 3rd Sweeping Rock

SAFFRON PRINCE possibly needed the run at Southwell last month, but he is on a good mark based on his Plumpton success two starts ago and could take plenty of beating. King's Reste has to be noted on her first outing for Dan Skelton having had a wind operation recently, while Worcester scorer Scrupuleux cannot be ruled out either.
Prediction : 1st Saffron Prince 2nd Kings Reste 3rd Scrupuleux

SEA OF MYSTERY returned from a short break to finish third at Ffos Las last month and he rates the one to beat in a tricky finale. Karl Marx put in a disappointing performance at Wincanton last time but is a player based on his previous form, while in-and-out performer Bay Fortuna and Market Rasen third Ilovemints also merit consideration.
Prediction : 1st Sea Of Mystery 2nd Karl Marx 3rd Ilovemints
