Verdict

Donald McCain and Jason Maguire won this last year with Bunclody and KRUZHLININ is fancied to repeat the feat. He won on his chasing debut at Carlisle and improved on that despite only finishing second to Parsnip Pete at Newbury last month. Majala opened his account over fences at the seventh attempt when scoring at Taunton on his reappearance but has an alternative engagement at Ascot while Realt Mor never recovered from some poor jumping at Ayr on his comeback and was well beaten. Ohio Gold could figure on his chasing bow but Roman Conquest hasn't raced since 2010.
