All Hell Let Loose may find the ground too testing but LIEUTENANT COLONEL has a touch of quality despite pulling up in a Grade 2 over hurdles last time. Gordon Elliott's charge had been running really well over timber previously and deserves another chance over the bigger obstacles. Pylonthepressure took his chance in the National Hunt Chase at Cheltenham but faded away over that 4m and this is more like his trip. Knockraha Pylon has been going well but was behind the selection over hurdles at Cork so High Nellie could prove more of a threat having made most for a comprehensive victory at Cork, only her second start over fences.
