Verdict

SANDFORD CASTLE brings the most solid recent chase form to the table, runner-up at Taunton last month. His mark is creeping up all the time but he's fancied to make his presence felt again. Seaside Girl and Black Centaur are others worth a look, whilst market support for chase-debutants Tip Top Mountain and Amanofhisword would need to be viewed positively.

  1. SANDFORD CASTLE (IRE)
