Verdict

Faltering Fullback hails from a yard that has taken this for the past two years and he's significantly better than his recent form figures suggest so be prepared for a big run. LINNEL was heavily supported to gain his first success over fences in the Grand Sefton at Aintree but was just touched off in that controversial race won by Stewarts House. He's been raised 6lb but looks destined for better things and can gain deserved compensation. Hans Crescent looks a very tough opponent as this rapidly-improving chaser has been very impressive in his last two races though he's now 19lb higher than for the first of them. Silent Creek ran a superb race in this last year and looks to have been saved for another attempt by CHristy Roche while the improving Seabass is another making excellent progress and he just about holds Like Your Style on Punchestown running despite an 8lb rise.
