Verdict

A tough one to call as last year's winner Cuneo tries blinkers in his bid to to fend off the likes of Thermistocles, Sire Du Berlais (reversed the from when he won the final of this race at Cheltenham in March), and Rock De Baune, who all chased him home in the 2018 renewal. However, this is a tougher race and THE JAM MAN, who has continued to impress as he learns his trade, might just have the edge this time around. Tout Est Permis doesn't have much to find with the selection and is also forwarded as a live contender. Mortal is very well handicapped in comparison to his chase form and is another to bear in mind.
  1. The Jam Man
