Verdict

That's Rhythm may be a senior citizen but he looked as good as ever last year with his only defeat coming when falling in the Foxhunter Chase at Cheltenham. Irish raider Walden should make his presence felt while Penmore Hill won three times under Rules last spring and arrives off the back of an easy victory between the flags at Silverton. Special Portrait is rarely far away in hunter chases north of the border though, surprisingly, is having his first run on the track. BRASSICK has yet to finish out of the frame under Rules. He had a subsequent Grade 1 winner behind when second in a novices' handicap at Chepstow in October and looks a classy addition to the hunter chase ranks - he may be too good for these.
