The feature race of the meeting is the Grade Three bet365 Gold Cup over a marathon trip and we have a strong fancy in this one with the Christian Williams trained Kitty's Light looking to have his day in the sun.
A winner at Kelso back in March last year off a mark of 135, he then stepped up in trip for this event off 139 and was a narrow second in a photo-finish running a career best and if not for being hampered would have won the race.
Kitty's Light returned in October at Chepstow finishing a narrow second to a well handicapped rival in Chirico Vallis.He was then bumped up to a mark of 149 where he finished a superb second in the Grade Two Charlie Hall Chase, but struggled back in handicaps since, being pulled up at Newbury and then running no race at all on two occasions in soft ground.
Back down to a mark of 140 two starts ago he was seen getting back to form at Kempton in the Grade Three Coral Trophy he only found stablemate Cap Du Nord too good.
Up 3lb for that he was last seen in the Scottish Grand National at Ayr, where again he bumped into a well handicapped stablemate in Win My Wings, where he could only run on into second behind the mare.
The six year old on Saturday has so much going for him, off a mark of 145 which is only 2lb higher than his Scottish National win, he gets his desired good ground and from giving 10lb away to Win My Wings last time out he is now receiving 9lb, with the mare going up a stone in the weights for her latest win.
We can't look past him and he looks a solid bet.
