In depth

Verdict

Soll is being aimed at the Grand National but runs his best races here. Noble Legend was just beaten off today's mark at Leicester but is better over shorter trips and Merrion Square looked to be struggling when taking a heavy fall at Kempton over Christmas and hasn't been seen since. CHARTREUX was in front and still going well when falling at Kempton last month. Jumping is obviously a concern over these tricky fences but Tom George's grey is clearly well treated at present and could gain compensation with a clear round. De La Bech can't be ruled out either but Howard's Legacy hasn't been at his best this season and this looks a big ask for Kasbadali and Goring One.
