Forecast

Simply Wings (5/4), Pacha Du Polder (7/4), Grandioso (4/1), Toby Lerone (11/2), Richmond (13/2), Lord Ben (10/1), Boygojumping (18/1), The Ould Lad (20/1), Stone (20/1), Night Alliance (20/1), Nickname Exit (25/1), Pay Your Way (50/1), Nobby Kivambo (100/1), Rock of Ages (100/1)

Verdict
GRANDIOSO can follow up his solid effort at Taunton last month by registering another hunter chase success here. The drop down in trip should suit the ten year old with his trainer having an excellent record in these races and he is taken to get the better of the Taunton third Lord Ben and the classy Pacha Du Polder in this. 1. Grandioso 2. Lord Ben 3. Pacha Du Polder
