This test should be ideal for HOLD THAT TAUGHT on reappearance. He has plenty of experience over fences now and some good form to his name as well. Venetia Williams has had a few winners and the ground is soft here so plenty in his favour. He was last seen at Ascot back in February where he took a tumble when held up out the back. I’m willing to forgive that given it was the first mishap in his career and dropped 3lb despite his big weight I think he should win this.

Equus Dreamer was beaten less than a length by Bavington Bob here when last seen and that form reads quite well so he looks the danger. At a bigger price Morning Spirit will strip fitter from that reappearance run last month and might be worth backing to hit the frame as he likely still has more to offer over fences. Uncle Alastair goes up to three miles for the first time over fences and despite being a 10-year-old remains quite lightly raced so he is also respected.
