Verdict

Three times a winner over hurdles, CUP FINAL makes his chasing debut and should have little trouble disposing of today’s only rival with a clear round. Ben Haslam’s charge is well ahead of Spoilt Rotten on these terms with the latter failing to complete either side of going close over fences at Leicester last month.
