Verdict

OSCAR TIME, second in the 2011 Grand National and fourth in the Aintree showpiece last year, should have too much class for these, despite his advancing years. He showed he was no back number between the flags nine days ago, winning by five lengths on the bridle. Dante's Storm was last seen under Rules when falling in the 2013 Foxhunter Chase at Cheltenham but he's another who brings recent winning form from point-to-points to the table and is preferred to close-up Bangor second Bermuda Boy. Maurisca and Windy Arbour may find this company too hot.
