Verdict

Few of these have chasing experience and BINCOMBE, who won at Wincanton last month, and Red Rock, successful at Fontwell in October, look closely matched on the form book. But Philip Hobbs' charge surely has more scope than the latter and, having possibly seen a little too much daylight at Exeter last month, can get back on track here. Crystal Swing should enjoy conditions and may be the pick of the chasing debutants ahead of Supreme Bob. Evan Williams runs both Still Believing and Buywise but the pair may need more time.
