Verdict

Several possibilities in this very competitive opener. Nicky Henderson has tasted success in this 3 times since 2013 so the suggestion is MONTE CRISTO, who was still in with a shout of aplace when hampered at the last in the Coral Cup. Edwardstone has some very solid 2m handicap form to his name and is bred to stay this trip so he's next on the list ahead of Mister Coffey and Solwara One.

  1. MONTE CRISTO (FR)
  2. EDWARDSTONE
  3. MISTER COFFEY (FR)
