Verdict

The form of the hunter chase that FOUNDRY SQUARE won at Newbury last month is usually worth following and the eight-year-old can follow up here at the chief expense of easy Towcester scorer Pearlysteps. None of the others have had a recent run with Made In Time racing for the first time in 18 months, though Rebecca Curtis' entry did have useful form in handicaps a couple of years ago. Pathian Prince is pretty consistent and may be capable of reversing running over 2m4f here last May with Rebel Alliance. The General Lee, a dual course and distance winner, may be next best but could only finish fourth in this in 2011.
