Verdict

Plenty of familiar names on show here including 2019 Cheltenham Gold Cup runner-up ANIBALE FLY. Tony Martin's charge is clearly not the force of old but, having been luckless in the Grand National at Aintree 3 weeks ago (brought down third), he can snap a lengthy losing streak stretching back to 2017. Plan Of Attack heads up the opposition following a string of placed efforts in cross-country events, with Champagne Platinum and Glenloe also considered.

  1. ANIBALE FLY (FR)
  2. PLAN OF ATTACK (IRE)
  3. CHAMPAGNE PLATINUM (IRE)
