Verdict

TRICKY TRICKSTER's last run was in the 2011 Midlands National but he's been out hunting and Paul Nicholls wouldn't have brought back the former Aon Chase winner if he didn't think he could pick up a race or two at this level. The 10-year-old should see off his three rivals with Flaming Gorge probably the one for forecast-backers. A former Nicholls inmate, he was only beaten two lengths by Hunt Ball in a handicap at Wincanton around this time last year. Start Royal won a point-to-point last month and will ensure there is no hanging about but Rathcor may be found wanting.
