Verdict

It was concerning to see WHITE ARM jump poorly at this course last time out having previously been progressive over fences, but perhaps that can be put down to freshness on his first run of the season, and he is given another chance here to continue his improvement in chases. Not out of the first three in his last five starts last season, that level of form would put him right there in this contest, and he can secure a third win over fences. Twiss's Hill, a Grade 3 runner-up in March, could be next best, ahead of Georges Conn, who probably won't be good enough to win this but could land a place.
  1. White Arm
  2. Twiss's Hill
  3. Georges Conn
