Last rules win came from a mark of 102 over 4m (soft) in 2017, but unable to win again in seven subsequent points, and unlikely to do so in this field.
Former Oliver Sherwood inmate who won an Alnwick point in December (good). Has won on heavy, but looks up against it on recent form.
Point winner (good to soft) this time last year. Held since then and steps into this sphere for the first time needing improvement.
Unable to win since taking the Grade 2 Clonmel Oil Chase in 2015, but has largely kept very good company. Sixth in last year's Grand National and ran well here on heavy last time. Should prove too good for this field.
Last Year's Winner
Road To Riches (2/7), Financial Climate (7/1), Mr Pepperpot (9/1), Tulsa Jack (10/1), Settledoutofcourt (12/1)
- Road To Riches
