Martin Pipe, trainer of Tresor de Mai
"He seems to have it all to do off top weight. He can't win unless the handicapper gives him a chance."
Simon Sherwood, trainer of Il'athou
"He's very well, but runs here mainly because we can find no other race for him to start off his season. Ideally, he wants three miles."
Nick Gifford, trainer of Skycab
"I'd be surprised if he didn't come on for the run, because he usually does after a break, but he seems in very good form at home and is ready for a race."
Nigel Twiston-Davies, trainer of Redemption
"He's had no luck at all so far this season. His saddle slipped last time out, but on his best performances he would have a good chance."
Oliver Sherwood, trainer of Claymore
"We'd always planned to aim for this race and, as I didn't want him to get a penalty, we gave him his first start of the season over hurdles. He won that nicely - getting his freshness out of the way - so we're very hopeful."
Henrietta Knight, trainer of Midland Flame
"I don't expect ground or distance to be a problem, but I am slightly worried about how the race will be run. We used new tactics for him last time - he won from the front - but there are several others who like to lead here."
Philip Hobbs, trainer of Wave Rock
"He seems in good form but hasn't won for two seasons and the handicapper's got his mark."
Robert Alner, trainer of Cracking Dawn
"He's a bit of a dark horse, having to be rested when getting heat in a leg after winning on his only start in a chase, but we're hoping he'll run well. He could just be on a decent mark."
