Verdict

Seabass, third when favourite for the 2012 Grand National, has Aintree on the agenda again and should now be approaching his peak. He had Cheltenham winner Tammy's Hill behind on his reappearance in a Fairyhouse hunter chase and there's no reason to suggest he's lost his ability. Toner D'Oudaries has raced exclusively in pattern race company since completing a hat-trick in the autumn. He has a penalty for a Listed race success at Thurles when Make A Track ran poorly but still looks a threat to all. BOG WARRIOR has been alternating between hurdles and fences over the past couple of years but his jumping has left plenty to be desired. However, he's a class act when getting it all together and has a Grade 1 victory over the bigger obstacles to his credit so is given the nod. Raz De Maree and Yes Tom will need to find plenty to get involved.
