Official ratings suggest Benefit Cut is the one to beat here but he jumped poorly before being pulled up at Leicester last time. The Italian Yob may need a confidence-booster as well but Kitegen kept on well to score on his chasing bow at Kempton and should have more to offer. FARMER MATT might be the value as he's taken well to fences and only had to be pushed out to win at Exeter earlier this month. He's best going right-handed and was successful over hurdles here in 2012. Superior Quality has the ability to pick up a novice chase but his last two runs have been disappointing.
