Verdict

CYRNAME proved himself over 3m when strolling home in the Charlie Hall and is taken to the turn the tables on last year's winner Clan Des Obeaux in what could be yet another Paul Nicholls domination of this contest. There are doubts surrounding quite a few so there's possibly some each-way value in Waiting Patiently, who is top class on his day and has a good record when fresh.
