Verdict

PALYPSO DE CREEK has won 11 of his 14 starts between the flags and was winning for the eighth time under Rules when successful at Wetherby at the start of the month. The leading point-to-point horse of 2013, the 11-year-old gets on well with Claire Hart and the partnership can notch another success here. Foundry Square's jumping fell apart at Ludlow last time and the Newbury winner was pulled up. He has something to prove now while it looks like Marufo and King Fontaine are lights of former days. Beneficial Reform isn't easy to catch right but has won over these fences and could sneak into a place today at decent odds.
