The six-year-old picked up a 5lb penalty for Saturday's success and with the weights going up 14lb after the latest acceptance stage, he is now on 10st 9lb. Not surprisingly that timely victory elevated him to the head of the ante-post market at 8-1 with Coral.

His trainer Philip Hobbs has claimed this race three times in recent years with Rooster Booster (2002), Detroit City (2006) and Menorah (2010). The Minehead handler could also be represented Nearby, Oldrik and Alazan.

Heading the weights now on 11st 12lb are the Paul Nicholls-trained Sanctuaire, and Topolski from David Arbuthnot's stable.

Nicholls is also responsible for recent Ascot winner Brampour and Domtaline, a scorer at Chepstow a month ago.

Other notable entries include Paul Flynn's Galway Hurdle winner Moon Dice and other Irish hopefuls Charles Byrnes' Jack Cool and Inspector Clouseau from Willie Mullins' yard.
