Verdict

Gevrey Chambertin has by-passed all of the novice events to run in this. Unbeaten in three starts over hurdles, David Pipe would love to win this for obvious reasons and the grey has every chance despite his big weight. Salubrious easily justified favouritism at Musselburgh last month and should be thereabouts again while Bourne won well at Kempton over Christmas and hasn't been disgraced in a couple of hot handicaps since. EDEYMI was second in the Fred Winter here last year and looks to have been laid out for this. He certainly caught the eye having been held up at Leopardstown last time and won on the Polytrack earlier. Tony Martin's five-year-old may be the one to beat with Shane Shortall taking off 8lb. Toner D'Oudairies could also go well back over hurdles while Village Vic is probably better than he's shown so far and Ma Filleule won a Grade 2 at Warwick last month. That form hasn't really worked out but Nicky Henderson's mare could be well handicapped. Double Ross and Make Your Mark are others with claims.
