Verdict

Always one of the most competitive races of the season and this looks a particularly good renewal, featuring several unexposed sorts who could be ahead of the handicapper. Nicky Henderson has a very strong hand courtesy of BUZZ and Mister Coffey, with the former taken to build on his Betfair Exchange Trophy second with crack claimer Kevin Brogan taking a handy 5 lb off. Fifty Ball looks next best.

  1. BUZZ (FR)
  2. MISTER COFFEY (FR)
  3. FIFTY BALL (FR)
