Verdict

DISTIME has placed twice over C&D in handicap company in the past and he can put last seasons disappointment here behind him by taking a highly competitive renewal of this hunter chase. The selection has had a fairly low key build up to this race having placed twice in point-to-points and he can get the better of Balnaslow who can finish runner-up here for the second consecutive year. The booking of Jamie Codd catches the eye for Grand Vision and having won off a mark of 135 as recently as February he can finish third.
  1. Distime
  2. Balnaslow
  3. Grand Vision
