Verdict

ENCORE CHAMPS is well handicapped on the pick of his chase form for Warren Greatrex, and having shaped well on February's debut for Dan Skelton, there should be more to come over hurdles. Ask Dillon is a very reliable operator, while Welsh Saint could easily spring back to life in first-time cheekpieces.
