Forecast

Verdict

It is intriguing to see TEMPESTATEFLORESCO making his debut over hurdles in a race such as this, at the age of nine. Perhaps Colin Tizzard felt his mark over hurdles had gotten too high, but regardless of the reasons he has to have an absolutely massive chance if bringing anything like his best form over fences to the table, given how he has run in some decent quality handicap chases. Steel Bob looks a promising sort and seems the only possible option with which to take on the selection, with Clo Sacre nominated as a very distant third best.
