Verdict

Party Rock has made giant strides recently but has been raised a further 6lb since completing his hat-trick at Cheltenham and that could bring his winning run to an end here. Recent winners Arctic Court and Drum Valley have a bit to prove in this grade but it would be no surprise to see old Cockney Trucker go well under McCoy while Stuart Crawford runs Ayr runner-up Trucking Along and Now This Is it, though the latter has a bit to find with Bar De Ligne on Perth running. Bourne and the returning Decoy and One Term could be interesting but NATIVE GALLERY looked on the way back when third at Punchestown and Ben de Haan's lightly-raced eight-year-old can repeat his victory of 12 months ago off a 7lb higher mark.
