10st 12lb

J: Sean Flanagan

T: Gavin Cromwell

He's generally far more workmanlike than fluent over his fences but produced a sound jumping display in this race (good to soft; 4lb higher today) last year, finishing strongly as well but he'd twice been rather messed about in traffic on the second circuit and left with far too much to do before taking second, Corach Rambler having gone well beyond recall; similar build-up to last year but requiring more improvement and he has a bit to prove in the mud, while on the other hand soft/heavy ground will place even greater demands on stamina and that is his major strength; has to be in serious calculations.

J: Sean Flanagan

T: Gavin Cromwell

Very useful chaser, runner up in last season's Grand National his finest effort; two runs over hurdles and fences over inadequate trips; could do better here but this is very much a stepping stone back towards Aintree.

Albert Bartlett winner in 2021; more than two years since his only win over fences, in a Grade 2 event over an extended 2m6f at Punchestown; restored to his best when second to Kemboy in last season's Bobbyjo Chase and put in a terrific effort when second in the Grand National; begins new campaign over an inadequate trip.
