KNICKERBOCKERGLORY came up short when third behind Aucunrisque on his handicap debut at Wincanton in January but he registered wide-margin wins in maiden and novice company either side of that effort. Knickerbockerglory was making the most of a good opportunity at Ludlow last month, but he was still impressed with how he went about his business, posting a completely dominant 17-length success. He faces a tougher task here under a double penalty but this strong-travelling type could be tricky to peg back.

PLATINUM CARD is 7 lb higher than when successful at Ayr three weeks ago, but he is still chucked in on his Flat form and it could be a while before the handicapper catches up with him. Platinumcard showed useful form on the Flat for Keith Dalgleish and he enjoyed a productive time of things in 2021, winning on four occasions. He posted a ready success on his recent debut for Gordon Elliott, taking advantage of a lowly hurdles mark, and he should prove difficult to beat.

AMATEUR justified good support at Ffos Las a couple of weeks ago to register back-to-back victories in the West Wales National and he looks worth siding with here. Amateur has gone up 6 lb for his Ffos Las victory but such a rise is well deserved as that looks like a solid piece of form and he was always in control after being produced to lead at the fourth-last. That effort also highlighted his wellbeing and he should launch a bold bid.

INTO OVERDRIVE was fitted with cheekpieces for the first time at Carlisle on his penultimate start and he showed improved form to register a dominant nine-and-a-half-length success under a positive ride. Into Overdrive went up 6 lb for that success but he had no problem defining the rise in the weights at Hexham last time, looking well on top at the finish. He steps up to three miles here (those victories were achieved at around two and a half miles) and is up to another 5 lb, but he is an improving type and can complete the hat-trick.

The prolific MINELLA TRUMP was unable to complete the eight-timer when last seen at Ludlow in December, but he was by no means disgraced, finding only an in-form and unexposed rival too strong. Four of Minella Trump’s victories were achieved around here, including three over fences, so he clearly goes well at this venue and he can make a winning return having been freshened up.

petite rhapsody is still searching for a first win but he shaped like his turn is near when finishing runner-up at Musselburgh last month, only just failing to get up having been short of room on the approach to the final flight. The third on that occasion has since won and Petite Rhapsody, who has edged up only 1 lb, is expected to make his presence felt.

Gordon Elliott has a superb record at this venue, including in bumpers, so his runners are always entitled to plenty of respect. Elliott is represented by GUN RUNNER CASH, who makes some appeal on paper being a half-brother to a bumper winner, while another of his siblings was a fair chaser. He gets the vote.
