Verdict

Theatre Guide, HADRIAN'S APPROACH and Bury Parade look the three to concentrate on in this. The former won on his reappearance last season and got back on track in April with a wide-margin victory at Newton Abbot. The latter got off the mark over fences at Carlisle a year ago but still hasn't won over this longer trip and Nicky Henderson's charge has been taking on much better company. Second here in last season's Feltham, he was also third in the RSA Chase at Cheltenham and a repeat of either of those efforts would probably suffice. The others will all need to improve to take a hand in the finish.
