Hitman (1/7), Getaway Trump (10/3), Colonel Custard (13/2), Captain Cuckoo (18/1)

Verdict

It's impossible to look beyond HITMAN, who has created a very good impression in his 2 completed starts over fences and this race will serve as an aperitif ahead of a potential tilt at the Marsh Novices' Chase at the Cheltenham Festival in 12 days time. With stablemate Getaway Trump due to run at Doncaster, Colonel Custard should claim second-place money ahead of Captain Cuckoo.
