Boomarang (6/4), Bold Record (13/8), Colditz Castle (11/4), The Late Legend (33/1), Weekly Gossip (40/1), Outsmartin (125/1)

Verdict
This really only concerns three of the runners with Colditz Castle very much on a recovery mission after disappointing at Wetherby last time over 2m; he’s been tried at this trip before and it may well be the key to him but he does come with risks. Nicky Henderson has a very sound strike-rate with newcomers from this age group and Bold Record has to be respected but BOOMARANG even with his penalty is just preferred. He’s taken a little while to get his jumping together but saw off a well-fancied odds on chance last time and already has an official rating of 129.
  1. Boomarang
  2. Bold Record
  3. Colditz Castle
