Course winner that has also won over this trip. Lightly raced since getting off the mark back in June 2017. Was giving Ucello Conti a decent race before unseating rider at the last in a Thurles Hunter chase in January. Worth a market check.

5/1

Popular veteran who is now without his regular jockey. Best days are clearly behind him but the gallant 13-year-old keeps on giving plenty winning his last Hunter chase start and a point-to-point start on return earlier this month. Top rider booked.

Forecast

Ucello Conti (7/2), Road To Riches (4/1), Sizing Coal (9/2), On The Fringe (5/1), Fenno's Storm (5/1), Coastal Tiep (6/1), Gwencily Berbas (6/1), Lac Fontana (14/1), Chosen Dream (28/1), Horendus Hulabaloo (40/1)

Verdict

Sizing Coal will be looking to retain his title, winning this contest 12 months ago beating FENNO'S STORM a head. The eight-year-old can put the record straight at the expense of last years winner and the Gordon Elliott-trained Ucello Conti in first-time cheekpieces and the Aintree Foxhunters third Road To Riches. The 14-year-old, On The Fringe demands respect and may need a couple of these to falter, but the veteran will be a willing partner for jockey Derek O'Connor.
  1. Fenno's Storm
  2. Ucello Conti
