Verdict

Donald McCain has trained the winner of the last two renewals and Go Conquer looks set to make a bold bid this year despite disappointing at Bangor last time. He had scored easily over course and distance before that. But Aintree winner BALLYBOLLEY may prove too strong back at this level given he faced a much tougher task in Grade 3 company at Newbury last time. Nigel Twiston-Davies' charge gets the vote to returning to winning ways with the remainder having shown little over hurdles so far.
