Verdict

Plenty in with a chance in this. Marodima chases a hat-trick having been raised 8lb for his latest win at Warwick, where he beat Roi De Rose, and Cruchain isn't out of this after scoring at Kempton last month with Coup Royale behind and Quotica De Poyans unshipping his rider. Inside Dealer was a well-beaten third over C&D last time behind HUNT BALL and as the latter was winning for the fourth time in only seven starts over fences, he's taken to continue his progress and go in again. Exeter winner Easter Meteor has taken well to fences and is another to consider with further progress likely.
