Verdict

Veteran SAMETEGAL has been holding his form well in stronger company so is taken to gain a deserved victory on his first go in a hunter. Useful ex-French chaser Porlock Bay advertised his well-being with a recent impressive points win so shouldn't be underestimated while Captain Cattistock isn't ruled out easily either now in tandem with the in-form Fergal O'Brien team.

  1. SAMETEGAL (FR)
  2. PORLOCK BAY (FR)
  3. CAPTAIN CATTISTOCK
