Verdict

No getting away from the strong trend that the last 14 winners of this contest have been age between six and eight, ranging from the likes of Tiger Roll in 2016, age six to Muirhead and last years winner, Total Recall as an eight-year-old. While the ten-year-old, Rogue Angel, well beaten in this 12-months ago is still capable of hitting the frame along with the veteran Kylecrue they may be outpaced by the Gordon Elliott pair Timiyan and It's All Guesswork, who has hit the frame in his last four chase starts. Last time out winner Black Scorpion and potentially exciting, Blast Of Koeman can grab a place here behind the Henry De Bromhead-trained FULL CRY.
  1. Full Cry
  2. Blast Of Koeman
  3. Its All Guesswork
