Verdict

You can probably put a line through half of this field for one reason or another but Brass Tax has already proved himself over the larger obstacles, having dead-heated at Market Rasen before making Cedre Bleu pull out all the stops at Ascot. Prince Buster is exposed but has form in decent company while Asaid made a winning start over hurdles here and was quite highly tried after scoring at Towcester in February last year. MALT MASTER was a short-priced favourite on his chasing bow at Bangor but couldn't go with Tenor Nivernais after jumping the second-last alongside. He'll have learned from that and can go one better on this easier course.
