KEPPOLS HILL can hardly be a confident selection having fallen in two of his last three starts and he all but came down on his chasing debut. He remains a young stayer with great potential and providing he gets his act together can take this on the way to the National Hunt Chase at the Festival. Godsmejudge is also in the same race and produced an outstanding performance to finish runner-up to Rigadin De Beauchene is a Grade 3 handicap over 3m5f here last month. He should be the one to benefit if the selection blots his copybook again though Grouse Lodge, who has only been beaten once under Rules, won't go down without a fight though he finished alone on his chasing bow at Towcester. Winning point-to-pointer Humphrey Bee will need a series of mishaps to occur to have any sort of chance.
