Superb chaser who is unbeaten in 14 runs over obstacles and his Champion Chase win in March was ultimately another impressive win after he hit a flat spot. Has won on his three visits here and clearly the one to beat.
A front-runner who has just the one way of racing and did far too much when flopping in the Arkle Chase in March. Already had Footpad in big trouble when that one fell at the last on comeback run but this demands another step forward.
Smart novice who missed the festivals in the spring but was impressive on his return last month. The form itself needs improving on but he jumped really well and will have the race run to suit him.
Wonderful chaser who landed another pair of Grade 1's last term. Excellent record fresh and the heavy rain is in his favour and will make a bold attempt to repeat his 2016 win in this.
