Verdict

Paul Nicholls has won this with the likes of Flagship Uberalles, Azertyuiop and Master Minded in the past but Dodging Bullets has a lot to prove before he can be talked of in the same breath. He steps out of novice company in a bid to extend his unbeaten record but MODULE has the stronger form. His stamina appeared to run out when only fourth in the Peterborough Chase at Huntingdon last time but an earlier second to Somersby at Exeter can't be faulted as the top-class Cue Card was a further six lengths away in third. He won't mind the mud and neither will stablemate Majala. Raya Star should also handle the ground, as will Desert Cry. But Donald McCain's charge appears to face a stiff task at the weights, as does Lord Of The House.
