Galway Jack was clear when falling two out over a longer trip at Southwell nine days ago and will be fancied to make amends here off the same mark. But we'll take him on with NORTH STACK, who won over 2m2f here in March and didn't do a great deal wrong when second to a well-treated rival at Uttoxeter next time. Kempton winner Moscow Chancer is 7lb higher here while Dineur also looks to have his fair share of weight on his chasing bow though, like Pollen Jock, could prove a better chaser than hurdler. Taffy Thomas and Tannerman are others tackling the larger obstacles for the first time but can't be ignored.
