Tiger Roll (8/11), Easysland (3/1), Might Bite (9/1), Urgent De Gregaine (16/1), Yanworth (18/1), Neverushacon (25/1), Out Sam (33/1), Diesel D'Allier (33/1), Arlequin D'Allier (33/1), Chic Name (50/1), Fact Of The Matter (50/1), Josies Orders (50/1), Outlander (100/1), Utility (100/1), Sumkindofking (100/1), Kingswell Theatre (100/1)

Verdict
Having won the last two runnings of this contest it's hard to look passed dual Grand National winner TIGER ROLL in the 2020 renewal of the cross country chase. Easysland has shown good form in this sphere to date and the gelding, unbeaten in seven completed starts in this sphere looks likely to give the selection most to think about while fellow French raider Urgent De Gregaine can get the better of stablemate Arlequin D'Allier in the battle for third place.
  1. Tiger Roll
  2. Easysland
  3. Urgent De Gregaine
