Getabuzz has hit top form this year and bids for hat-trick after wins at Catterick and Sedgefield. He's up a further 8lb today but should still be in the mix. However, PANAMA PETRUS is less exposed and opened his account in good style at Market Rasen earlier this month. Venetia Williams' inmate may just edge this for a yard still firing in the winners. Bumper winner Ivy Gate has been thereabouts over hurdles without threatening while Romany Ryme went close over 3m here before falling early on at Catterick last time and looks best of the rest.
