Handicap: Yes

Going: Good (Good to Soft in places)

Paul Nicholls has a strong hand in this race with Capitaine and Amour de Nuit both expected to enjoy this decent ground under their respective talented conditional jockeys, while Forth Bridge was just touched off in the Scottish County Hurdle in February and looks sure to thrive in such conditions. Innocent Touch is thrown in at the deep end for his first start since leaving the Richard Fahey team, so it could be worth siding with recent Carlisle winner GOING GOLD. James Bowen got on well with the six-year-old on that occasion when the pair accounted for a decent northern yardstick and further improvement looks assured despite this slight drop in distance and a 5lb rise.
