Struggled in Aintree Foxhunters' three weeks ago and is not one to rely upon heavily but his win at Wincanton (2m4f, soft) for Sam Loxton in February makes him of strong interest on this stable debut.

Nothing like as good he was when at his peak for Venetia Williams and had luck on his side when beating last year's winner of this race at Wincanton in February (2m4f, soft); now has to bounce back from a shock defeat at Ludlow at the hands of Captain Tommy.

5l winner in a 3m novice handicap chase (soft) on this card last year; lacklustre at Uttoxeter (17l behind two of these) in March but reappearance second of five at Lingfield five weeks ago was much more like it; a very lightly raced 7yo who could have improvement in him as well as major stamina reserves, but he wasn't the quickest over his fences last term and there's a concern that that may put him on the back foot.

His first run over hurdles in five years when runner-up over 3m1f here last month and followed that with a sterling effort under top weight back chasing over 2m3f (the winner Fame And Fun runs 1.30); this is more his trip but he faces another big ask under a welter burden.

Verdict

Notachance has very solid claims on the back of his excellent effort in the Midlands National but SUPER SURVIVOR (nap) gets the nod. He’s well handicapped on the form of his Chepstow win in December and did well to give himself any chance late on when sluggish throughout out in a different handicap on that same Uttoxeter card in March. He’s better than that.[Alistair Jones]
