Age Of Wisdom is chasing a hat-trick in the 2m Stayers Handicap and as one of his wins came over course and distance, he’s sure to be popular with punters. However, he was entitled to win what was a very poor contest as 1/5 favourite and while it’s harder to crab his subsequent success at Kempton, he’s gone up a further 5lb for that and might struggle to give weight and a beating to CLIFFS OF DOVER.

Paul Nicholls’ charge is better known as a hurdler and his most recent effort in that sphere came in the Kingwell Hurdle at Wincanton, where his rider set a suicidal pace after been gifted a healthy start and he predictably fell in a hole going into the home turn. Still, that run would have served to blow any cobwebs away after his 434-day layoff and he certainly showed the benefit when winning over track and trip on his next outing.

Megan Nicholls managed to settle him beautifully on that occasion and that meant he still had plenty left in the tank for his final effort, with his rider pushing him clear for a decisive success. That will have done his confidence plenty of good and while he’s now 7lb higher, Nicholls’ claim takes care of most of that and even his revised mark of 71 could prove very generous given he’s rated 140 over hurdles.

I fancy he can go in again this afternoon and he’s also worth sticking in your tracker for when he does go back over hurdles, with Aintree likely to suit him given his record on good ground and a flat track.
