Verdict

This marathon usually turns out to be competitive and this year looks no exception. Reblis was only beaten a neck by Mission Complete over a similar trip at Warwick on his reappearance and is better off at the weights here. Miko de Beauchene ran well when a close third to Shaking Hands at Towcester while Master Neo was the only one to make a race of it with Benheir at Ffos Las before Christmas, though the winner was well beaten next time. It took PRESENT TO YOU 17 starts to break his duck over fences but he's really stepped up to the plate since being sent over a distance of note, winning over 3m4f at Stratford before running Ballyoliver to half-a-length over a slightly shorter trip at Newbury. He may well be capable of giving young Jake Hodson the biggest win of his career to date. Well Refreshed still needs to brush up his jumping while last year's winner Double Dizzy is 10lb higher, though did run well over Cheltenham's cross-country fences last time.
