In depth

Verdict

San Telm has an alternative engagement at Huntingdon and is probably better over fences nowadays. Kayserberg hasn't won over hurdles since his debut but has claims on his fourth at Aintree last May and Wakanda wasn't disgraced over course and distance last time in a novice event that's worked out well. Paul Nicholls has sent ATLANTIC ROLLER up from Ditcheat for only his second start of the campaign. A winner on soft ground last season, he probably needed his run at Cheltenham in November and can beat the returning Tornado Bob in receipt of 6lb.
