Verdict

ALTIOR can repeat his victory in this race 12 months ago and in the process maintain his unbeaten record over fences. Nicky Henderson's charge gave his followers a few moments worry at Cheltenham last time out but ultimately ran out a comfortable winner and he can see off God's Own who finished third on that occasional and has placed over C&D in the past. Special Tiara, the winner of this race three years ago can take third this time.
  1. Altior
