Next Sensation has raced well in the last 12 months, winning at Doncaster in December and Newcastle and Plumpton in November and October, but has not really been tested in big races like this one.
Ted Veale has strong experience, but has only 1 win since winning the County Handicap Hurdle last year at the Cheltenham Festival at odds of 10/1. Ted Veale has a chance here, but a poor win rate would suggest only a place bet.
Ned Buntline has relatively less experience than the other front runners but has performed well in Ireland in recent months. However, this lack of experience should probably deter many from having a punt on Ned Buntline.
Mr Mole is consistent, and knows this distance well. Mr Mole has been tested in smaller races over hte past year, but could surprise with a place here.
Festive Affair only has 5 career races, and has pulled up in two of those. However Festive Affair did win well at Newbury in January and therefore the odds will be fairly short here.
Kid Cassidy has a lot of experience, but erratic form. On the day Kid Cassidy could win this, or finish last! Kid Cassidy does have Cheltenham experience though, finishing 12th in 2012 and 2nd last year. Kid Cassidy has since won at Cheltenham in November.
Arnaud has a lot of experience and good form of late in small races. However in larger fields Arnaud has not performed well.
WinDrawWin Prediction - Kid Cassidy To Win. Mr Mole To Place.
