Verdict

Mark Walford and Jamie Hamilton teamed up to win this last year but Honest Intent is making his chasing bow not having raced since beaten in a seller over hurdles in September. DICK DARSIE is given one final chance to come good as the 3m2f at Sedgefield last time may have been just a shade too far. Moorlands Mist is often placed but is now 0-13 over fences but Pinch Of Ginger should figure with a clear round.
