In depth

Verdict

Enniskillen won this in 2017, his only victory in 26 starts on this course. Jamie Codd is on board Vital Island, four-times a winner between the flags but well beaten when tackling these obstacles in the past. Enda Bolger has won seven of the last ten and YOUCANNOTBESERIOUS (NAP) looks another for the yard. Unraced since finishing runner-up to stable companion Blue Templar in this in 2019, he won't lack fitness and Derek O'Connor is back on board. Stablemate Saint Benedict has been a disappointment in hunter-chases but this course could bring out the best in him.
