Verdict

Sire Collonges won a novice chase at this meeting last year but looks high enough in the weights. Well Refreshed is an out-and-out stayer who needs soft ground but Lost Glory may still be on the upgrade. BALTHAZAR KING is on the same mark as when successful 12 months ago, despite winning a cross-country race in France last month. Philip Hobbs' charge wouldn't want the ground to get any softer but will go close if the rains stay away. Tour Des Champs still has scope while Ace High and Bradley are potentially well treated, along with veteran Tullamore Dew. They'll see out this trip better than Market Rasen third Kian's Delight. This is a step up for Life Of A Luso, Connectivity and Mister Grez but Ballyoliver could figure if fully wound-up.
