Verdict

David Pipe won this last year but has already withdrawn his two entries which may have left the way open for ex-pointer FLINSTONE. Jonjo O'Neill's charge is by Presenting out of a Saddlers' Hall mare so should have the pace for this. He's preferred to Trickaway, who pulled too hard on his debut under Rules at Cheltenham but should be capable of better. Essteepee is a full brother to a staying chaser so should do better when tackling hurdles and fellow newcomer Dancing Shadow may also need more time.
