Verdict

Persian Snow had little trouble dispatching No Buts over course and distance last time but is facing a much tougher task in this. Mr Moonshine is upped in class off a 7lb higher mark for scoring at Musselburgh last month, while those with the best previous form are all looking to get back on track. That includes Conquisto, well beaten in three starts since landing the Old Roan Chase on fast ground at Aintree in October. Drumshambo picked up a nice prize at Ascot in November but he's struggled on his last couple of outings so a speculative vote goes to MAJALA. Tom George's charge won the Grade 2 novices' chase on this card last year and a return to this venue may bring out the best in him again if he by-passes an alternative engagement at Newbury.
