Verdict

After victories at Uttoxeter and Bangor, Tick Tocker is likely to be a short price to complete his hat-trick here. He must go close but TWILL STAND TO US has begun making giant strides between the flags and looks a viable alternative to Donald McCain's charge in receipt of 7lb. General Hardi was in good form over fences at this time last year but recent efforts have been less impressive and Alpha One is also better known as a chaser. Monbeg needs to improve on what he's shown so far under Rules.
