Verdict

Supreme Bob has only had three runs over the larger obstacles and was placed over course and distance last time. Eased a further 4lb, he must have a chance of opening his account today. Possibly Flora has been placed in four of her five starts over fences while Le Grand Chene won at Towcester on Boxing Day, though is still 7lb higher. STORMHOEK has been pulled up twice in a row but is well treated on last year's form and we're prepared to take a chance on him returning to his best against ordinary rivals.
