Verdict

Alpancho had Rockchasebullett 16 lengths behind when winning here in November but was then pulled up in a better race at Newbury and has been rested since. Speed Master is another returning from a break but Roll The Dice should be all the better for his run at Wincanton last month, his first since April last year, and he makes more appeal than Entertain Me and Free World. THE NEPHEW had a couple of runs in jumpers' bumpers last month and that should have put him spot-on for this. He was in good form in the autumn and the better ground is a big plus. Brody Bleu was third over course and distance in January before finishing fourth behind Cheltenham winner Present View at Kempton and may be the danger.
