Last year's winner Little Legend has won three hunter chases and 11 times between the flags but was beaten out of sight at Stratford last month. Rockiteer has won his last two starts at Ludlow and must be a threat to all but EARTH DREAM, who has won over this course and distance, gets the nod having run a cracker in the Fox Hunters' Chase at Aintree - that is easily the best recent form. Nowurhurlin won at Ascot in March but was well beaten at Ludlow subsequently and is better over shorter trips.
