Verdict

Force Of Habit hasn't been in the best of form but has now dropped to a mark he looks capable of winning from so he's on the short-list while General Bunching is back on the mark he won from over the C&D in January. The latter didn't get the best of runs when behind Prince Of Fashion last month and can get closer but though the winner should confirm the form he's well held by Shake The Bucket on his previous run. Boots Madden's charge is going very well at present and looks certain to get involved but Gordon Elliott is double-handed and should come away with the spoils. Silverlord won here last month before a poor effort at Wolverhampton but it's the top weight DISCOTECA, twice a winner on the Flat at Windsor and four times successful over hurdles earlier this year, who looks the one to be on under leading jumps rider Davy Russell.
