Verdict

Of those that have had a run, Gold Ability and Streets Of Newyork may prove best though it will be a surprise if this doesn't fall to a newcomer. Morning Royalty is an obvious starting point as Willie Mullins' charge is related to the useful Morning Supreme. Nicky Henderson won this in 2009 and has a pair of entries this time, the once-raced Oscar Nominee, who can certainly improve on his Doncaster debut run and Captain Cutter, whose dam hails from a high-class chasing family. Jessica Harrington's Play The Market is another who is bred to be a useful chaser but his stablemate REAR VIEW is a different proposition as he's out of a mare who won on the Flat and is from the family of several Group winners. He may have enough pace to take this on his debut though Arthur Moore's Puddle Alley is another with speed and stamina in his pedigree.
