Party PIctures ran well in a similar race here before a poor run at Cheltenham where an early mistake didn't help. Delta Borget has shown ability in similar company but this can go to KING OF ALCATRAZ, who makes his debut over regulation fences but who has been going well between the flags. Blazing Whale, runner-up in a similar event over these fences last month, looks best of the rest.
