SILVER GYPSY's latest third at Cheltenham looks the best form on offer here and Donald McCain's mare should return to winning ways this evening. Kealigolane couldn't dominate at Aintree last time and dropped away quickly once headed. He's probably high enough in the weights now but a case can be made for Lady Bluesky, who has trip and going in her favour and may have found 2m5f too far at Perth last time. Tartan Snow is better over fences, however, and Beverly Hill Billy looks to be facing a stiff task from 4lb out of the handicap.
