Verdict

Gilbarry won the Grade 2 Champion Novice Chase at Ayr back in April but carries a penalty for doing so which favours HIDDEN KEEL. Charlie Longsdon's charge is rated 1lb higher than the top weight and, though he hasn't run since April, won his latest two starts at Exeter in the style of a potentially smart chaser. Divers was last seen winning at Cheltenham in March, though he's got a bit to find with the selection on today's terms, while the weights put C&D winner Lord Villez at an even bigger disadvantage. Mr Moonshine and Kellystown Lad are hard to fancy.
