Verdict

Alderley Rover's last two runs have been over the smaller obstacles but Donald McCain's grey is generally better known as a chaser and may struggle to concede weight here to KELLS BELLE. Nicky Henderson's mare was put up 5lb after finishing third on her reappearance at Cheltenham but she's a progressive sort and has the size to cope with her big weight. Fiendish Flame is starting to look well handicapped and could make the frame but Edgeover returns from a lengthy lay-off and Jolly Roger's confidence may be at low ebb.
