In depth

Verdict

BEEVES has leading claims both on today's terms and recent form. He went agonisingly close at Aintree last time having won at Carlisle on his chasing debut and looks the one to beat. Coverholder has plenty to find on official figures with the selection despite scoring nicely at Sedgefield last month but Talkin Sence looks to have a decent chance at the weights. The latter won over these fences last time and makes more appeal than Little Glenshee, who would prefer more testing conditions.
