Verdict

County Zen won over 2m4f here last time but, with the odds-on favourite running way below-par, it may not pay to take that form too literally. NOT TIL MONDAY's victory at Stratford last month suggests he can concede weight all round and he gets the vote ahead of Wom, who did win a maiden hurdle over track and trip last year but has disappointed on the level and over jumps since winning a handicap on the Polytrack in January. Phoenix Flight drops into a seller for the first time and hasn't been running badly on the all-weather so could provide the biggest threat.
