Verdict

ESTEEM has ability, as he proved when successful at Ludlow last month. He's been a shade unfortunate to unseat his rider either side of that success and is the one to beat here if putting in a clear round. Whatshallwedo beat today's rival Strathaird by 23 lengths at Bangor in December and followed up over hurdles at Fontwell. But he was a big disappointment over the smaller obstacles here six weeks ago and has gone up in the weights since. Sablazo and Royal Mile have the past form to figure but both were pulled up on their latest start and have a bit to prove now.
