Verdict

Boris The Blade scored over C&D last month but disappointed when pulled-up back over hurdles at Ayr during the week. He has claims in this as does recent Towcester winner Armedanddangerous. The latter's defeat of Photogenique looks stronger form than Gorey Lane's victory at Market Rasen last time but Royal Mackintosh is a bigger threat than both on his latest third at Carlisle. QUACITY posted a good effort when third in a higher grade chase than this at Kelso last time and he gets the vote as a similar effort should see him home in this lesser company.
