THURSDAY 2.30 RYANAIR CHASE
1. Saint Calvados 2. Melon 3. Min Saint Calvados took his form to a new level when narrowly pipped by Min in this race last year and travelled well in the King George on his reappearance before failing to see out the 3m trip. He is still only eight and further improvement is entirely possible. Melon has been placed at the last four festivals, including when cruelly denied in the Marsh Novices’ Chase last year, and can be expected to be at his peak once more.
