Verdict

MARLENO was sent off favourite for his chasing debut at Stratford and was just getting into the race when falling. He's given a chance to make amends here. Hellfire Club scored over hurdles when last seen at the track in 2010 and is having his first start over fences, but Saddlers Deal is more experienced and won a chase at Catterick earlier this year off a 6lb lower mark. Tahiti Pearl has disappointed since August's win at Sedgefield and Warwick scorer That's The Deal is returning from over a year's lay-off.
