Verdict

The last two winners of this, BIG ZEB and Golden Silver, lock horns again and have Captain Cee Bee to contend with. The former has seen off Golden Silver on three occasions in 2010, including when they met at Navan last month. The Queen Mother Champion Chase winner has everything in his favour and should beat his old rival again but Captain Cee Bee is a big threat. Eddie Harty's charge made a highly satisfactory reappearance at Naas where he easily accounted for Archie Boy and the only times he has been beaten over fences came when falling at the last in a Grade 1 here a year ago and when breaking a blood vessel in the Arkle at Cheltenham. Scotsirish is useful but not quite this grade while J'y Vole was unplaced in the Lexus Chase here yesterday.
