Verdict

Arthur's Pass arrives in much better form than Noble Legend having landed a double over these fences last month. However, both will find life difficult taking on better opposition including Problema Tic, who fell in the Becher at Aintree in December but has the past form to go very close. Tenor Nivernais has struggled a little since scoring at Bangor last year but has scope for further progress this season as does CURRENT EVENT. He had an off-day in better company at Wincanton last month but had beaten subsequent winner Bally Legend in good style at Kempton before that and gets another chance in this.
