Verdict

Paul Nicholls has saddled five of the last seven winners of this race and KNAPPERS HILL is likely to enhance that record. A smart performer in bumpers last season, the 5-y-o made a winning start over hurdles at Chepstow and he should have little trouble in following up here before going on to better things. Kalyptra is taken to follow the selection home, with Earth Company best of the rest.
