Betting

Forecast

Dr Sanderson (3/1), Falco Blitz (4/1), Dorking Boy (4/1), Sully D'Oc Aa (9/2), Trincomalee (13/2), Smarty Wild (15/2), Republican (17/2), Copper Coin (9/1), Subcontinent (10/1), Editeur Du Gite (12/1)

Verdict

Lots with the potential to play a part here but DR SANDERSON arrives at the top of his game and with experience over fences so is taken to defy a 7 lb rise and follow up his ready Plumpton win. Nicky Henderson's chasing debutant Falco Blitz scored over hurdles here last term so is greatly respected, while Dorking Boy and Trincomalee are also worth considering with improvement in the pipeline.

  1. DR SANDERSON (IRE)
  2. FALCO BLITZ (IRE)
  3. DORKING BOY
