Formscan - GA LAW confirmed the promise that he displayed on his return from a 603-day break at Aintree in October when taking the Paddy Power Gold Cup at Cheltenham the following month. That form has worked out well and an 8lb rise should be workable if he can see out this extra distance. Mister Coffey remains a maiden over fences but last year's Kim Muir second is more than capable of making the frame in a race of this nature. The progressive Tea For Free has to be shortlisted, while Cloth Cap merits each-way consideration.
