Verdict

STAGECOACH PEARL made a winning reappearance in this race last year. He already has a run under his belt this time around and, as this year's renewal is much less competitive than the 2011 version, Sue Smith's chaser is taken to come out best again. Tito Bustillo has made a promising start to his chasing career winning for the first time over fences at Carlisle last month and he makes more appeal than the returning De Boitron and the frustrating Kings Grey. Idarah has yet to win off a mark as high as this while Ultimate won't get his own way out in front here and also looks high enough in the weights.
