Gunmoney has the best record of these in hunter chases and won at Leicester in February. He has a penalty to carry but has to go on the short-list along with Exeter runner-up Sobre Tresor. Showman could make the frame but possibly lacks the scope of a few of today's rivals. CRAZY EYES fell on his only previous start over fences under Rules but was a decent staying hurdler on his day and has done well in point-to-points, winning five times in 15 starts. Hayley Moore is one of the more experienced riders in this so Ian Cobb's charge gets a tentative vote.
