Verdict

Rebecca Curtis and Tony McCoy teamed up to land this 12 months ago with Peckhamecho and AT FISHERS CROSS is fancied to follow suit. The dual bumper winner was only beaten half-a-length here on his debut over hurdles in March and a subsequent fifth at Punchestown was no disgrace. Earth Tremor keeps finding at least one too good and that was the case again on his UK debut in June while points winner Copper Birch may need more time. Wincanton fourth Master Benjamin may be the pick of the remainder ahead of bumpers winners Lydstep Point and My Lad Percy.
