Verdict

The odds are likely to be very unattractive for ROBINSON COLLONGES, but he is without doubt the one to beat. Noel Fehily and Paul Nicholls have already combined for plenty of winners in the absence of Ruby Walsh in the saddle and they look to provide the answer in this race. The selection has already won a chase at Bangor by twenty lengths and despite falling at Wincanton most recently that was a far tougher race than this. In addition, he was probably travelling the best prior to falling in that Grade 2 event and as long as he has recovered from that blunder, he is a comfortable pick. The prices will be reflective of his excellent chance and accordingly Abstract Art and Brimley will appeal to some punters at the greater odds of reward. Abstract Art returned from a lengthy absence at Taunton but was highly disappointing before pulling up. Brimley has disappointed under rules and he is without a win in twelve starts. However, he could improve over the fences as a previous point-to-point winner.
