Class 1 | 5yo+

Winner £67,524 - 5 runners


Going: Soft

Surface: Turf

Race Tip

The Dan Skelton trained GREY DAWNING (4) may confirm form with GINNY'S DESTINY (3). Jumped well before staying on strongly to land the G1 Turners Novices Chase at the Cheltenham Festival last month while the latter-mentioned Paul Nicholls runner could give a bold sight once more especially if allowed an easy lead. IL ETAIT TEMPS (5) didn't jump with great fluency when a one-paced third in the G1 Arkle Novices Chase last month. Might do better now stepping up in trip for the first time. BLOW YOUR WAD (1) managed to win the G2 Pendil Novices Chase and cannot be completely discounted up in grade.
