Verdict

DIVINE SPEAR swerved the testing ground set for Ayr a few days ago to come here and he can take advantage of that to complete a hat-trick. Nicky Henderson's charge is a 20-1 chance for the JLT at next month's Cheltenham Festival and he has plenty going for him in this field. It remains to be seen whether wind surgery can help Delegate to improve, but he will need to if he is to threaten the top weight, while Derintoher Yank is very likely to be the one battling with him for the minors.
