Forecast

Beat That (6/4), Strong Pursuit (9/4), Topofthegame (9/4), Morello Royale (12/1)

Verdict
BEAT THAT is given another chance despite falling twice. He had jumped and travelled well until falling at Cheltenham last time so he doesn't seem a fundamentally flawed jumper and although he probably doesn't retain all of his ability his hurdles form is not easily forgotten. The two newcomers over fences are both of interest and of the pair the younger Topofthegame is preferred with Paul Nicholls clearly in a hurry to see him tackle fences. Strong Pursuit can't be dismissed either with the champion jockey in the saddle.
  1. Beat That
  2. Topofthegame
  3. Strong Pursuit
