Verdict

This isn't for the faint-hearted with last year's winner Cross Appeal arriving out of sorts and 8lb higher. Uncle Junior easily won a cross country chase at Cheltenham before unshipping Patrick Mullins on the same track a fortnight ago while Like Your Style was having his first start over this sort of trip when runner-up to Tofino Bay at Navan. A P McCoy rode him on that occasion and this time is on board the same owner's Colbert Station, who has only run four times over fences, but it's yet another J P McManus-owned entry who is handed the vote. Richie McLernon rode ALFIE SHERRIN to victory in a Grade 3 at the Cheltenham Festival and again when Jonjo O'Neill's charge finished third in the Irish National. A recent run will have put his mount straight and he's taken to land this for the raiders. Glam Gerry, Gates Of Rome and Nicky Henderson's Prince Of Pirates may do best of the remainder.
