Verdict

CURRENT EVENT was much the best of these over hurdles and is likely to start odds-on for his chasing bow. Fit from an outing over timber at Chepstow last month, Paul Nicholls' charge is related to a winning chaser in France and looks the one to beat. Super Directa has won twice over hurdles and looks the one most likely to chase home the selection if taking to fences as Mon Chevalier, who has been placed three times in four chase starts, has been off the track since April 2010. Harvest Song and Johnny Mullen make no appeal.
