Verdict

Flaming Gorge was no match for Tricky Trickster at Huntingdon but faces nothing of that one's calibre here and Fleur Hawes saddled the winner of this in 2010. Bob 'N' You won at Ludlow eight days ago while On Borrowed Wings was fourth in a decent hunter chase at Wetherby and is a previous course and distance winner. But he has to give 8lb to RAVETHEBRAVE, who has been in decent form between the flags lately and represents a yard that has an excellent strike rate in hunter chases. Alan Hill's charge gets the nod.
