Race Tip

SHAN BLUE couldn't match expectations in the Ryanair at the Cheltenham Festival last month, on his first run after falling when having the Charlie Hall at his mercy, but is a fascinating prospect now dropped into a handicap. A mark of 148 may underestimate what Dan Skelton's gelding is capable of when on song and the eight-year-old, who is still open to improvement over fences, can show his true colours this time. Killer Kane impressed when winning at Sandown on his latest start and is respected, while Cap Du Nord, who got the better of stablemate and subsequent Scottish Grand National runner-up Kitty's Light when scoring at Kempton last time, cannot be ruled out either.
