Verdict

ROAD TO ROME has shown some excellent form in this sphere this season and with a jockey who has won this race three times in the past he is taken to register a fifth hunter chase success of the campaign in this prestigious event. Burning Ambition has had this as his target all season and he can chase the selection home ahead of Top Wood who ran well when placed at Cheltenham last time out.
