Verdict

Don't Push It's target again this season will be the Grand National and he's likely to need this. Pettifour returns from a long break but that isn't necessarily a disadvantage for a Nigel Twiston-Davies runner and he was a very decent staying hurdler a few years ago. The potentially well-treated Raslan may prove the pick of David Pipe's trio, while My Shamwari ended last season on an upward curve but has his stamina to prove over this trip. Stow had some decent form last term and Cantlow has plenty of scope, while lightly-weighted pair Define and Rossmore Lad could figure but we like the look of OSCARGO. This is only his second start under Rules but he was hugely impressive when beating subsequent easy winner Harry The Viking at Chepstow in March. The third has also franked the form since and Paul Nicholls' seven-year-old may have been let in lightly here.
