Verdict

Golan Way has won eight races over jumps from 22 starts and reached a mark of 150 over fences. But his last victory came in a Listed chase on Boxing Day 2011 and he has a long absence to overcome. HABBIE SIMPSON didn't quite reach the same heights under Rules though he did manage to finish reasonably close to Bobs Worth on two occasions over hurdles at Cheltenham in 2011. His first venture into hunter company resulted in a facile victory at Wetherby last May and hopefully he'll be fit enough for this. Beggar's Velvet landed a novices' handicap chase at Uttoxeter but his best form has been on good ground so he wouldn't want the going to ease.
