Paddy The Stout finally came good at Kempton last month and is only 5lb higher here. It's too early to give up on Un Bon P'Tit Gars while Tresor De Bontee has taken well to fences and won't mind the heavy going. Headly's Bridge has proved a consistent performer over hurdles and should be thereabouts if taking to the larger obstacles but SMART MONEY looks better treated. He's also been knocking on the door over timber lately and is expected to improve now tackling fences as he was second to a couple of smart performers in point-to-points in Ireland earlier in his career. Sergeant Dick looks the pick of the remainder.
