Verdict

Alvarado, Sir Du Bearn and Lively Baron are all recent winners in this grade and should be in the firing-line again, despite a rise in the weights. Buffalo Bob ran well for a long way on his reappearance at Haydock and is another for the short-list while Kauto Relko was taking on decent opposition at Cheltenham last time, though has struggled over this longer trip in the past. Fine Parchment certainly can't be ignored as he's a bold jumper and a winner off this mark in the past. Gavin Sheehan also takes off 7lb. MONKERTY TUNKERTY has won five times between the flags and made an eye-catching debut over fences under Rules when beating Bradley by 11 lengths at Warwick in January. The runner-up won three of his next five starts and is now rated 133 so Jessica Westwood's charge is potentially well treated here off 127 and gets the vote.
