Verdict

Ice Cool Champs was runner-up to a subsequent Cheltenham winner at Exeter last month but was beaten 14 lengths. Another Frontier was all out to win a lesser contest at Doncaster and is 4lb higher but Joe Farrell continues to slip down the weights and Le Boizelo won his penultimate start at Wincanton, though will have his stamina to prove. Bobo Mac could figure if the fences don’t get in the way but SOMEWHERE TO BE has his ground again and hasn’t been stopping over shorter trips. If he lasts home, he’s probably the one to beat with a first-time visor suggesting his trainer thinks he has more to offer.
