Verdict

Satou's latest win at Towcester came over a shorter trip but he did score over 3m1f at Sandown earlier and should be thereabouts here. Rhum also warrants a second look, despite picking up a penalty for his maiden victory over fences at Ffos Las, while Irish raiders Selection Box and Cottage Oak have the past form to figure. Tyrone House has failed to build on a successful reappearance at Wetherby, however, and Summery Justice would need a return to his very best to score off this mark. BLENHEIM BROOK never featured in the National Hunt Chase at Cheltenham but can be forgiven that run. His earlier defeat of Lie Forrit at Kelso was a commendable effort and, with conditions in his favour again, he is fancied to defy top weight here as he's the choice of Peter Buchanan ahead of stablemates Go Silver Bullet and Et Maintenant.
