Verdict

Arzembouy Premier has been keeping decent company over hurdles but Gordon Elliott has wasted no time sending the four-year-old over the larger obstacles. He gets a hefty weight allowance at this time of year and should go very close if his jumping stands up but winning hurdler BISHOPSLOUGH also has plenty of scope now going chasing and he should be up to winning a race like this. Back To Balloo and Prima Vista are more exposed but The Engineer was second on his only previous start over fences and has few miles on the clock. Banana Flambe looks to have a bit to find.
