Verdict

A nice prize has attracted a decent field, including As De Mee who won the Grand Sefton over the National fences at Aintree last year. Go Conquer was out of luck last season but goes well fresh and holds Howlongisafoot on the form book while it is surely only a matter of time before Pull The Chord is winning over fences. WORKBENCH (NAP) is probably better treated over hurdles at present but he is no slouch over fences and his record on this figure-of-eight circuit is exemplary - Dan Skelton’s charge can win again.
