Verdict

UMBRIGADO is very much a chaser on the up and gets the nod to defy the handicapper with this return to a longer trip in his favour. The opposite applies to Senior Citizen, who didn't get home over 21f on very testing ground in the Grand Sefton and can make his presence felt from this mark back over shorter. Paul Nicholls is seeking a sixth win in this since 2012 so Grand Sancy is also respected.

  1. UMBRIGADO (IRE)

  3. GRAND SANCY (FR)
