Pendra leads the betting, but despite a good career record could only finish 17th at Cheltenham last year in the Coral Cup, which may have been a step up in distance too soon. However Pendra has only been run at 16f and 17f in the past year, so does not come into this race with much reliable form at this distance. Manyriverstocross also does not have the experience at this distance and Manyriverstocross' form has been too unreliable in the past year, despite a 3rd place at the 2013 Cheltenham Fesitval.
Ericht is a well experienced horse and knows this distance too. Ericht may challenge for a win here and was 5th at Cheltenham last year. Festive Affair is an inexperienced runner and would be a speculative punt.
Dursey Sound is used to running this distance, and longer, but whose form is erratic and unreliable.
Attaglance is an 8 year old with bags of experience, and at this distance, but could age make a difference here?
