Verdict

This is a specialist trip for hunter chasers but it clearly suited Himalayan Express 12 months ago when a successful 50/1 chance. He had Swallow Delight and Noble Ben behind with Caulkin pulled up but bookmakers won't be as generous this year, though he hasn't pulled up any trees lately. Bay To Go made all for an easy win at Southwell two weeks ago but Steeltown and POPAWAY have both been in good form between the flags lately and the latter, with her mares' allowance, could be the one today.
