Verdict

Plenty here that could be given a chance of winning this with topweight Tidal Flow one of those after he strolled home at Uttoxeter on his second chasing start with his mark not looking unduly harsh. Kateson showed that he could be as useful in this sphere as he was over hurdles and there was plenty to like about his chasing debut although he needs to work on his finishing effort. Nicky Henderson is triple-handed and whilst Burbank and even the long absent Post War are interesting it looks as though his No1 hope is MORNING VICAR. A bumper winner here on his debut this has always looked to be the discipline he would excel in and he’s nicely weighted for his chasing debut.
  1. Morning Vicar
  2. Tidal Flow
  3. Kateson
