Blue Hills is in terrific form and has won four of his last five starts over the larger obstacles. He's been raised another 9lb since his latest victory at Newton Abbot, however, and his winning run may come to an end here. Preference is for MOLKO JACK, who often flatters to deceive but is a massive 28lb better off with the top weight than when beaten 10 lengths at Southwell in April and will appreciate recent rain more than most. Riddleofthesands has the ability to win a race of this nature but needs to brush up his jumping and The Grey One may be too high in the weights at present. Mad Professor won at Worcester last time but that was an even weaker contest.
