In depth

Verdict

Crixus's Escape has failed to figure since winning this last year and third-placed Glittering Love may reverse running on better terms. Dragonfruit won a lower grade chase at Bangor recently while the returning Clan Legend is 6lb higher than when last successful and would prefer more testing ground. SHE’SASUPERMACK won over hurdles at Aintree when last in action but has scored off today’s higher mark over fences in the past and Iain Jardine’s mare gets the vote with Finawn Bawn also worth a second glance on his first outing since 2019.
