Neither Colour Squadron nor Molotof were at their best at Cheltenham and both have yet to prove they stay this far unlike SIMONSIG. Nicky Henderson's grey didn't appear to take much out of himself when lengthening clear of a useful field over 2m5f at The Festival and it will take a smart performance to lower his colours here. Super Duty could be the biggest danger as he's a three-times winner over this trip though the horse he beat at Ascot last time, Keys, is proving a big disappointment. Aland Islands is unbeaten in three runs under Rules to date but this is by far his most difficult task to date and he's likely to find at least a couple of these too strong while the mare Baby Shine also has a bit to find on the book.
