Verdict

Triolo D'Alene was pulled up in the Paddy Power at Cheltenham last month and the five-year-old has his stamina to prove over this trip. Grove Pride easily won a novice chase at Exeter on his first start over fences but the others are established chasers and this track is a real test for the inexperienced. Bold Sir Brian is probably the pick of the weights and made a winning reappearance at Carlisle. But he may also struggle to get home on the ground so we'll give another chance to PACHA DU POLDER. Again, the trip is a bit of an unknown and he was pulled up on his return to action at Aintree but he has jumped around here successfully in the past and may just have too much class for these if Ruby Walsh can get him settled.
