In depth

Verdict

THAT'S RHYTHM may be of pensionable age but Sally Duckett's 13-year-old has much the best form of these under Rules. He had a host of useful hunter chasers behind when runner-up to Cheltenham Foxhunter Chase winner Salsify at Stratford last June and a recent fall between the flags was uncharacteristic. Rocklandslad has a good strike rate in point-to-points but a woeful record under Rules while Noble Ben, Ballyeightra Cross and Lincoln's Inn have also been off the track for a considerable length of time. Marky Bob won twice at Fakenham last season but ran a shocker on his reappearance at the Cambridge University Hunt.
