Roger Beantown had Fearless Leader well behind when landing a novice chase at Worcester last month. He should go well again but GENERAL MILLER looks to have the stronger form despite not winning. Nicky Henderson's charge has failed to threaten in either start over fences but this is less competitive than the handicap he contested over track and trip last time and he has plenty of scope for improvement over the larger obstacles. My Mate Vinnie has taken well to fences and went within a head of following up his Towcester victory at Worcester last time but Tough Talkin Man looks up against it.
