In depth

Verdict

Offshore Account is bidding for a hat-trick in this contest and, despite his advancing years, is likely to make a bold bid again after a recent second between the flags. Paint The Clouds has won eight times under Rules and could be interesting on his first start in a hunter chase if fully wound-up but we'll taken a chance on the fitness of the former Paul Nicholls inmate PRINCE TOM. Alex Dunn has a good record with other trainers' cast-offs and Nick Williams is an accomplished amateur rider. Larks Lad is useful when in the mood and may be the pick of the remainder, though he's better on a sound surface.
