Verdict

It's a bit of a risk as he fell on his chasing debut but we give BILLIE MAGERN the chance to show his best with that experience to build on in this Novice Chase while Last Flight should feature after her promising go over the big stuff last time and City Heights also makes the list. The pick was leading when he came to grief when jumping three out on his first go over fences but he had previously shown all of his talent over timber with a four-timer last year so we'll give him another chance. Last Flight also had a productive 2009 winning 50% of his starts over timber. He only found the one too good on his first go over the bigger jumps and he should build on that. City Heights looks for a hat-trick here set up by a victory on his chasing bow last time so we can expect another big run while Gothic Dream has been in contention in a couple of runs in this sphere and looks booked to give his running again. This looks a pretty decent race and Billie Magern can make up for his fall last time out.
