Verdict

ANOTHER AMBITION won this in 2011 and looks to have been primed for another crack. He was having his first subsequent start when an excellent third over hurdles at Killarney last month and with just 3lb more to carry than two year's ago he's given the vote in a tough race. Sin Palo is prone to making bad mistakes as he did when pulling up at Killarney but he's a cracking good staying chaser when getting his act together and has to be considered along with stablemate Toostrong, who has been brought along slowly and is just the type for this. Our Girl Lucy has found the ground much too quick on her last two starts and tonight's going will see her in a better light but the novice Churchfield Champ looks to have plenty of weight for what he's achieved.
