Verdict

With a £75,000 bonus up for grabs should the winner of this Listed contest go on to success at Cheltenham, it's no surprise a maximum of 24 will line up. David Pipe, and his father Martin before him, has farmed this handicap in recent years so Master Of Arts has to be worth a second look despite the fact that he hasn't raced over hurdles since finishing down the field at the Festival in 2009. Ted Spread was a decent stayer on the Flat for Mark Tompkins and beat today's rival Pascha Bere on his handicap debut over timber at Taunton. He's now 15lb higher, however, while Sire De Grugy may struggle to confirm latest running at the same west country track with Devil To Pay. ILE DE RE runs in his first handicap over hurdles but may have been let in lightly on the evidence of his victory over C&D in a novice event under a penalty last month. The fast-improving grey will relish the soft ground and can complete his hat-trick off a low weight.
