The betting market is likely to prove the best guide here. All of the entries are bred to be jumpers, most of them stayers, but the vote goes to HIGHRATE as Sue Smith's charge is an expensive purchase by Presenting and looks the type to do well in this kind of event. The Bingley-based handler is also represented by Plenmeller, who is a half-brother to a winning hurdler. Farewell Bluebell looks sure to be chasing one day as does Pudsey House, whose dam is related to several winning hurdlers and chasers. The filly Chapter Five gets all the allowances and is related to those good hurdlers Out Of The Shadows and Into The Shadows.
