Verdict

Last year's winner Bristol De Mai does not have his preferred testing ground this time, but his record at this venue is very impressive and his trainer loves nothing better than proving the doubters wrong in big races. That makes him dangerous to take on, but the going forecast does make him vulnerable. Nicky Henderson has been bullish about the fitness of MIGHT BITE, and the drying ground is more to his liking than his chief rival Native River. The pair served up a memorable Gold Cup in March and with no hill to climb in soft ground this time, the former might just be able to turn the tables on his doughty opponent.
  1. Might Bite
  2. Native River
  3. Bristol De Mai
