Verdict

GORES ISLAND won over hurdles here a year ago. He's been quite highly tried over fences so far this season and this looks a decent chance for him to start paying his way over the larger obstacles. Montoya's Son is back on a winning mark but was well beaten when third at Catterick on New Year's Day while Master Milan and Vosges have become expensive to follow. Back Bob Back stopped quickly after making the running at Newbury last time and, along with Zazamix, is possibly still a few pounds too high while Another Trump needs everything to go his way and has never won off a mark this high. Grey Missile has a bit of scope, however, and is worth a check in the betting.
