Verdict

Mick Channon has only ever had one previous runner in a bumper so it's interesting to see the West Ilsley maestro saddling Sgt Reckless here. He's related to Flat and hurdles winners and could go close but preference is for fellow newcomer MYSOCKS. A half-brother to Welsh National runner-up Giles Cross, he should have a future over jumps and may well be good enough for this with the ground riding on the soft side of good. Bertie Boru, Kalmbeforethestorm and Royal Native have already shown some ability and look the best of those with experience.
