Verdict

The Sawyer has been a grand servant to connections but has little chance at the weights in this rearranged Grade 2. Dan Breen has been in decent form over hurdles lately but has something to find with his rivals on chase form while Wishfull Thinking's career over fences hasn't quite taken off in the manner expected after he won at Aintree and Punchestown in the spring of last year, though he did enjoy a confidence-boosting success over 2m at Cheltenham last month. GHIZAO was a close-up third behind talented pair Captain Chris and For Non Stop at Ascot last month and that form easily gives him the beating of Wishfull Thinking. With the returning Hey Big Spender seemingly better over much further nowadays, the eight-year-old gets the nod.
