Verdict

Rose Loxton is always respected in such events with ex-Paul Nicholls horses, and she has a stranglehold in this race with both form pick Virak and the improving young pretender EARTH LEADER. The latter has something to find at this level, but six wins in points and hunter chases in the past year demonstrate his progress, and he beat a fairly useful sort in Big Casino for his latest success. Mustmeetalady also has form claims, but can be a tricky ride.
