Verdict

An interesting novice chase despite the small field with That'll Do, who won on his chasing bow at Stratford in May, looking to build on an encouraging run in a Listed handicap at Newton Abbot in August. Icy Colt was beaten in a match at Uttoxeter earlier this month but may have needed the run and wears blinkers for the first time here. He can't be ignored but the four-year-old JOLLY ROGER jumped really well when scoring easily at Ludlow. These fences are a lot tougher but he looks a nice prospect and could well follow up with winning hurdlers Bottman and For Non Stop probably best watched after a break.
