Verdict

King's Grace returned to winning ways over track and trip last month but has to give plenty of weight to his rivals. THE BEAR TRAP makes his chasing bow but will have been well schooled and could have too much pace for these if able to stay in touch. He's a strong traveler, though only managed one victory over hurdles under a waiting ride from A P McCoy. Swaledale Lad didn't turn up at Carlisle on his latest start in October but maybe the rest has done him some good.
