Verdict

Although often on and off the bridle throughout his races, it's difficult to be against TORHOUSEMUIR after his deserving first success over fences at Worcester (2m4f). He won with plenty in hand on that occasion and ought to be able to handle an 8lb rise in the weights given his exploits over the larger obstacles in 2018. Of the remainder, the locally-trained Goldslinger looks best placed to throw down a possible challenge to the likely favourite.
