Verdict

KATNAP's second in the Topham at Aintree reads remarkably well in the context of this race and if Joseph O'Brien's charge is straight for this return to action, he should take some beating. Any lack of sharpness can be exposed by Killarney runner-up The Winkler. He isn't the most reliable but has put in two good shows from his previous three. Ex-Nicky Henderson inmate Cocktails At Dawn is an intriguing runner on first start for Gordon Elliot, and any market confidence would be notable.
