In depth

Verdict

Green Winter isn’t as old as Threapwood but is still firmly in the veteran stage, though has won around here in the past and over 4m between the flags so will stay. Ange Des Malberaux also has bags of stamina but the former Cheltenham Festival winner LE BREUIL should be winning this even though he has been very expensive to follow
