Verdict

MOLOTOF was unfancied for the Jewsons Novices' Chase at Cheltenham and ran accordingly but was only beaten a length by Grandioso in a Grade 2 at Kempton before that. Clear at the weights on today's terms, he's the one to beat on that form. Kingsmere has lost his way since landing a double last summer but Well Regarded has found only Hildisvini too good on his last couple of starts and should be in the mix. Polisky has been taking on the likes of Overturn and Sire De Grugy and will find this easier, but Pantxoa is still feeling his way over fences and needs to improve to figure.
