Verdict

Pleasant Company hasn't been spotted since just failing to run down Tiger Roll at Aintree. He surely has that sort of aspiration ahead, but he's got a chance here if ready to roll. Sire Du Berlais tackles this trip for the first time but can enter the fray if finding his Cheltenham form while Walk To Freedom comes here thriving and will likely appreciate this stamina test. Slippery Serpent and the unexposed Cuneo are feared but MONKSLAND has been given a chance by the assessor and, given he's got a track record of going well fresh, Noel Fehily's mount might just grab it.
  1. Monksland
  2. Slippery Serpent
  3. Walk To Freedom
