It could pay to side with 13-year-old PERFECT CANDIDATE, who won this race in 2017 off a 15lb higher mark. Win and placed efforts at Haydock before the turn of the year show Fergal O'Brien's charge to be arriving in cracking form and this is likely to have been the plan for some time. Sametegal has performed well in both starts so far this season, the latest off today's mark at Kempton, and he is likely to give another good account, while Le Rocher cannot be ruled out either.
