Owner Occupier would have a chance in this on his best form but it's a long time since he got his head in front and he was last of the six finishers here last month. Topaze Collonges has gone close a couple of times this autumn and is probably still quite well handicapped but we expect ROSOFF to have improved considerably from his reappearance over hurdles here two weeks ago. A C&D winner on heavy ground in January, Laura Mongan's gelding can double his tally over fences today. The remainder were all pulled up last time and have some improving to do to win this.
