Eceparti (15/8), Springtown Lake (2/1), Whatswrongwithyou (4/1), Kayf Adventure (8/1), Tiquer (16/1), Lord Bryan (22/1), One For Billy (25/1)

Verdict

Venetia Williams has taken this race five times in recent years in the last seven years and herECEPARTI has shown improved form since switching to fences and the youngest horse in the field can complete a hat-trick with victory in this seven runner handicap chase. Whatswrongwithyou was running well prior to a blunder on his seasonal reappearance and he can put that behind him to claim second place ahead of One For Billy who is making his first start in over 12 months.
