Verdict

Speed Steed has arrived here via an unconventional route having run in two novices chases and a beginner's chase. Tim Vaughan's six-year-old has started at odds-on in his last two starts but has come up short and he's up against a number of battle-hardened hunter chasers today. RASH MOVE may be a 12-year-old but he ran a blinder in the Fox Hunters' Chase at Aintree and won this 12 months ago. He can score again ahead of Marky Bob, Louis Pasteur and 2011 winner Noble Ben. Party Pictures had the latter and Himalayan Express behind when second at Exeter and should also figure.
