Verdict

Super Villan is a bit hit-and-miss but ran a lot better than the final result suggests at Cheltenham four weeks ago and could go well at big odds in this. Big Society has been in decent form over hurdles but has failed to complete in both previous tries over fences while Fourovakind unseated his rider at Huntingdon last month. Woodford County made his chasing debut at that track but is another who needs to brush up his jumping. GOODTOKNOW certainly wasn't winning out of turn at Bangor in December and can follow up here off an 11lb higher mark, though James Huxham's claim makes Ballylifen a live contender.
