Verdict

A small but competitive field goes to post for this novice chase and it appears to rest between Mr Sneaky Boo and Just Murphy and we will take a chance on the latter. The gelding from the Nicky Henderson yard was a fair hurdler at best. He is sure to have been well schooled for this his chase debut and although he is likely to prefer more cut in the ground he will still be hard to beat. Mr Sneaky Boo at least has chase experience and goes on any ground but he was not as good as Just Murphy over fences. Sound Of cheers was a fair second behind Torrid Kentava last time but needs to improve again to trouble the principals. Sunday Rain and Master Chief look outclassed.
