Verdict

The Potting Shed won by six lengths on his chasing bow at Worcester but is 9lb higher here, though Gavin Sheehan takes off 3lb. Special Account was second at Worcester the last time he raced over this shorter trip while O'callaghan Strand has already won three times over fences, though has his fair share of weight at present and hasn't raced since February. MILARROW's last run was in March and he fell at an early stage. But he was successful here last year on similar ground and held his own in better company thereafter. It could be worth taking a chance on Colin Tizzard's six-year-old as he's much preferred to Perth second Woody Waller and risky jumper Bendant.
