Rince Ri leads the field for the first running of THE SPORTING INDEX HANDICAP CHASE on 11st 12lb, 8lb ahead of stablemate Commanche Court and ante-post favourite Spot Thedifference. There are 53 in the handicap for the new FRED WINTER JUVENILE HANDICAP HURDLE, while the inaugural JEWSON NOVICES’ HANDICAP CHASE currently has four joint top-weights.

Monkerhostin, who won the CORAL CUP off 10st 8lb last year, has 18lb more to carry this time around, while trainer Paul Nicholls provides the 11st 12lb top weights Le Roi Miguel and Armaturk, respectively in the MILDMAY OF FLETE HANDICAP CHASE and JOHNNY HENDERSON GRAND ANNUAL CHASE. The 2003 Smurfit Champion Hurdle hero Rooster Booster heads the VINCENT O’BRIEN COUNTY HANDICAP HURDLE, in which he was successful three years ago, on 11st 12lb.

It Takes Time, recent winner of the Grade 1 totesport Chase at Lingfield, will have to shoulder no less than 12st 11lb if he contests the FULKE WALWYN KIM MUIR HANDICAP CHASE with ante-post favourite Joly Bey given 12st 5lb in the same event.
