Verdict

There are some potentially well-treated handicappers lining up here, including Captain Sunshine and November's Cheltenham winner Buck Magic. Loose Chips and Victor Leudorum arrive in good form, as does Trackmate, while Philip Hobbs saddles both Lamb Or Cod and Uncle Jimmy. Araldur made a winning reappearance at Sandown while Oscara Dara is back over hurdles after finishing second to Cantlow over fences at Plumpton, though he's unproven over this trip. His trainer, Nicky Henderson, also has BEAR'S AFFAIR in the race and this lightly-raced son of Presenting is fancied to concede weight all round if in the same form as when winning easily under 5lb claimer Jeremiah McGrath at Aintree. Black Thunder has been raised 6lb since his second at Haydock while Rigidity is too inconsistent to merit serious consideration and Son Of Flicka is possibly being readied for a return visit to the Festival, where he sprang a surprise last year.
