Verdict

JOKER CHOKER has won three times over hurdles this year and looked to be on the way back when fourth at Cheltenham last month. Providing his jumping holds up, he should make a winning start to his chase career as today's rivals have a bit to prove at present. Take Of Shoc'S has won between the flags so could do better now tackling fences but Harvest Song still has much to learn about jumping the larger obstacles and Captain Smoothy has already had plenty of chances.
