Verdict

Another Hero is unbeaten under Rules, having won a couple of bumpers and twice over hurdles. But the four-year-old faces easily his toughest task to date here giving weight to Worcester winner Clondaw Draft and OCEAN CLUB. The latter didn't beat much at Cartmel last month but may well be on an upward curve and the winning pointer is taken to double his tally over timber. Winning chaser Gentleman Anshan isn't out of this and Nigel Twiston-Davies should find a race for Splash Of Ginge judged on his form in bumpers.
