Kings Temptation is amongst the favourites for the 3m novice handicap chase and rightly so as he’s the only recent winner in the field. However, he is not the most fluent over his fences and made one mistake too many when hitting the deck at Huntingdon last time, having scored there on his previous outing. That tight track might have been to blame and the more galloping nature of Uttoxeter might help him in that respect, but he’s risky nonetheless and is up against a couple of interesting newcomers to chasing.

Dan Skelton’s Cabaret Queen being one and she ran well enough over hurdles last month after a layoff to suggest she can be a player this evening. But she didn’t appear to get home when last tried over this far over hurdles and at the odds I’d much rather be on fellow chase debutant BLAGAPAR.

He was well beaten over hurdles last month, admittedly, but that run was surely needed after an absence of 637 days and he should strip far fitter here. Trained by the in-form Dr Richard Newland (3-9 in the last fortnight), who described him as a “three-mile chaser in time” after the second of his two hurdles wins in the summer of 2016, he’s still got time on his side at the age of seven and looks to be on a fair mark of 113, with Sam Twiston-Davies renewing the partnership.
