Chantry House was pulled up last time out in the King George reportedly hating the track. Prior to that he won an uncompetitive 2 runner race at Sandown, simply jumping round.
He is back to calmer waters here and at a track he's 2/4. His two biggest wins to date have been the Marsh Chase at the festival and the Mildmay at Aintree, both at Grade 1 level.
You could argue he was fortunate to win these, as he managed to pick up the pieces after Envoi Allen (4/9F) came down at the festival, and Espoir De Romay also fell at Aintree when really serving it up to him.
He is a high class horse nonetheless and should appreciate the drop back to Grade 2 company today and he will look to regain the winning thread ahead of a possible Gold Cup tilt.
The class act of the field and the horse to beat.
