Forecast

Ucello Conti (4/5), Gwencily Berbas (9/2), Chosen Dream (8/1), Blue Templar (10/1), Home Farm (12/1), Sidetracked (16/1), Macs Legend (20/1), Myrons (25/1), Samanntom (33/1)

Verdict
The 147-rated UCELLO CONTI should have too much class in this closing Hunter chase contest. The 11-year-old who was still in contention when unseating four out in the Grand National, can get his hunter chase career off the the best possible start, getting the better of former Gordon Elliott inmate, Sidetracked and Samanntom, who has some solid point-to-point form to his name.
  1. Ucello Conti
  2. Sidetracked
  3. Samanntom
