In depth

Verdict

Sydney Paget made most and jumped well when landing a beginners event at Towcester last month and though this is much tougher he looks a nice staying prospect and will love the conditions. Mcmurrough won handicaps at Newcastle and Wetherby before finding Cheltenham a step too far and back in this grade has to be respected as does My Boy Paddy, who found Bangor's 3m6f just beyond him though he only faded from around two out. Emperor's Choice battled to victory in a very tight finish at Taunton last month and as that was only his fifth start over fences he's entitled to make further progress and looks well enough handicapped but the fact that MARKADAM is unbeaten on this course may just give him the edge. Dianne Sayer's charge has been here three times and won the lot and though raised a massive 12lb for his latest success his rider can claim almost half back so he's expected to retain his unbeaten record around here.
