Race Verdict

The safest option here is probably COOMBE HILL. He ran out an impressive winner of a Taunton Hunters' Chase on his penultimate outing and was far from disgraced when runner-up at Newbury last time. He comes into this in good heart and could take some stopping. Just Amazing has a touch of class when at the top of his game but having failed to complete in two outings so far this year, he now has something to prove. Turko, a classy performer in his youth, was far from disgraced in the Foxhunter at Cheltenham and he is entitled to be in the shake-up.

Selection: Coombe Hill        Danger: Turko        Alternative: Just Amazing
