Verdict

THE LAST BUT ONE and Play The Ace have done their best stuff over fences so far but they look the pair to focus closely on here. Paul Nicholls' charge has won three times over the larger obstacles in 2018 but he ran well over timber last month and receives weight from his main market rival now. Play The Ace scored over C&D this month already and should give his running, but might be undone conceding a penalty. Max Liebermann hasn't displayed a lot of consistency on the Flat of late but his Huntingdon third in March ensures he's also on the shortlist in what isn't a strong event.
  1. The Last But One
