Verdict

This longer trip will suit Grade 1 hurdle winner Saint Are, who was second on his chase bow at Aintree. Blues And Twos has been placed between the flags and won over hurdles at Wincanton after a break. Join Together would probably have finished ahead of Teaforthree on his chasing debut at Chepstow had he not crumpled on landing after jumping the fifth last. Both have the scope to do well over the larger obstacles but the class act here looks to be RESTLESS HARRY. Already successful in a point-to-point, he gets 5lb from previous chase winners Mr Moss and Viking Blond and will take some stopping if adapting to fences as he won the Grade 2 John Smith's Hurdle by 20 lengths on his reappearance.
