Betting

Forecast

That's A Given (15/8), Beneagles (3/1), Gardiners Hill (9/2), Morraman (7/1), Sir Will (8/1), Pontresina (9/1), Glanvilles Guest (16/1), Strong Resemblance (20/1)

Verdict

The versatile and likeable Gardiners Hill is worthy of respect around one of his favoured venues but there remains a though that he’s a better hurdler than chaser and may just struggle in this grade over timber. Handicap newcomer Pontresina may well improve for a switch to this sphere but does encounter some race-fit types and this outing may well be needed. The consistent Morraman has to be considered but he has already been beaten off marks like this. THAT'S A GIVEN did well to finish second to a useful type at Fontwell last time and given this longer trip and a stronger gallop to aim at should go one better. Sir Will is interesting on his old form and any support should be noted.
