Verdict

Robin Will won a hunter chase here a year ago but is a tricky ride and has struggled under Rules this winter. Rio Milan was quietly fancied over hurdles at Warwick last time but never looked like threatening the places and Pistol has been a big disappointment over fences so far. Susquehanna River did win at Wetherby in the autumn but hasn't raced since finishing well beaten at Doncaster at the end of December. A couple of mistakes put paid to KNOCKRAHEEN's chances over track and trip at the start of the month but he'll have learned from that and gets the nod today ahead of Huntingdon runner-up Faith Keeper and Nodebateaboutit, who filled the same position here last month but may be better over further.
