Verdict

Olly Murphy had three runners in this last year with Richard Johnson riding the winner. The champion teams up this time with Corinto, open to improvement after just the two career starts. But the stable also run DONCESAR DE PRETOT, placed three times in his native France, and he should take all the beating if fully wound-up. Kilbrew Boy is improving and rates a danger but Go George Go has been disappointing so far over jumps given he won four times on the all-weather.
