Verdict

TRIO FOR RIO doubled his tally in hunter chases when landing this corresponding event last year and while his exploits in points have been mixed since (pulled up when last seen a couple of months ago), he gets the verdict to maintain his unbeaten record in this discipline. Prolific winning pointer Moratorium heads up the opposition, with last year's runner-up Fixe le Kap also fancied to feature.
