EARTH LEADER has won his last three between the flags and could be called the winner a long way out on his chasing debut at Fontwell. He has plenty of pace so this sharp track won’t bother him and he only has a small penalty. Will Biddick has won three points on Pancrace but the eight-year-old made no impression at Cheltenham earlier this month. An Scairp has shown nothing under Rules so far but might do better over fences having won an Open at Tabley 12 days ago. General Arrow looks a bigger danger, however, as his best form does tie in quite closely with the selection and he is improving.
