Verdict

A wide open race to conclude the 2018/19 jumps season. If you were to ignore an inexplicably poor performance at Taunton, then the Nicky Henderson-trained Colonial Dreams would rate as an interesting contender based upon his earlier Grade 3 form at Ascot, whilst the Paul Nicholls-trained Dan McGrue and the Philip Hobbs-trained That's A Given have the potential to continue to progress, with the former perhaps likely to be suited by racing on a sound surface at this 2m4f trip. However, another Hobbs-trained runner WAIT FOR ME traditionally thrives during the spring months, and with Richard Johnson in the saddle is taken to repeat his 6L win in this race in 2017.
