Verdict

SUTTON PLACE eventually won going away at Navan in February over a slightly longer trip but Barry Geraghty seemed to feel he was being lazy as much as anything and there is good reason to suggest he's got more in him. A replication of that run will in all probability take away this prize for him. He faces three of the rivals that finished behind him again now, and it's hard to see them reversing the form. De Plotting Shed may again do best of that trio. Tombstone needs to bounce back off a poor show at Cheltenham while Lieutenant Colonel is intriguing on first start over hurdles for Gordon Elliott in a race where he and trainers' title rival Willie Mullins account for all seven runners.
