Verdict

Dr Richard Newland and Cillin Leonard combined to take this last year and may be able to stage a repeat with CAPTAIN TOM CAT who doesn't look overburdened from a mark in the low 120s on the back of a pair of Uttoxeter novice wins. Nicky Henderson's Hijack and Fix Sun are similarly unexposed types and rate obvious dangers, while Our Power is also respected having won a strong race when last seen.

  1. CAPTAIN TOM CAT (IRE)
  2. HIJACK (IRE)
  3. OUR POWER (IRE)
