Verdict

Half of this field won last-time out so this is no easy puzzle to solve. Basil Fawlty only just scraped home at Worcester and may be undone by a penalty and Glen Countess may not have beaten much at Cartmel but Foot The Bill arrives off the back of a course victory and Halucha certainly has the size to make a chaser, though has only had one run over the larger obstacles so far. Maid Of Silk responded to the step up in distance last time but Terfel's Oscar still has some questions to answer and Dukeofchesterwood lacks a bit of scope. MINELLA FIFTY looked to be getting his act together at Ffos Las last time and a little further improvement could see him go one better here.
