Verdict

Ratify would be absolutely thrown in on his recent chase form if he didn't have a poor record over hurdles, while recent C&D winner Briac has something to prove off this mark but should still run well. Meanwhile NO HIDING PLACE represents a leading trainer in Nicky Henderson and though he has more weight to carry today than his recent Kempton second he looks the progressive option in the field and could be the one to side with.
  1. No Hiding Place
  2. Ratify
  3. Briac
