Paul Nicholls and Harry Cobden are a combo to be feared here at Wincanton and bottom-weight, Overland Flyer has to respected, despite some unspectacular results of late. Chef D’Equipe returns to chasing after a couple of confidence-boosting performances over hurdles and a reproduction of his run behind Siruh Du Lac at Newbury could see Philip Hobbs’ charge challenge.

Opening Batsman has proved this season that he remains a capable handicapper and Harry Fry’s teenager could be a danger. Yet, the eye is drawn to DENTLEY DE MEE, who has been treated rather harshly by the handicapper for a solid performance at Cheltenham on Trial’s Day.

Nick Williams’ charge was largely unfancied that day, following a comfortable defeat behind Drovers Lane in the Ryman’s at Cheltenham’s International Meeting. Chester Williams’ mount was much more competitive this time around, staying on nicely down the home straight to finish eight lengths behind Kildisart in fourth.

Before those two outings at Cheltenham, Dentley De Mee had run well without success. A decent second over hurdles on his reappearance was followed by an excellent showing on his chasing debut, where Williams’ charge finished third of ten behind the talented Springtown Lake. 

Seven of the eight horses who finished ahead of Dentley De Mee, on his last two runs, are destined for the Cheltenham Festival and Williams’ six-year-old finished ahead of three subsequent winners on his first start over fences. 

Both of Dentley De Mee’s victories, and most of his best performances, have come on fast right-handed tracks like this and the handicapper’s decision to drop him by two pounds following that fourth at Cheltenham should give the 10/3 shot an excellent chance of claiming a maiden victory over fences.
