Benemeade hasn’t had a lot of racing over the last year or 2, but was turning into a decent chaser of a far higher mark than he gets to race of here. He has some very decent good ground hurdles form for a horse of this mark and If he can improve for his first run in a long time back in November he might be able to get involved here at a huge price.

Penhill won at the festival in great style but that race can be tough and the first thing to do is rule out the 2 from there. Bon Papa traveled really well in the Neptune until he encountered a lot of barging and made a mistake 2 out when looking like he was going to get seriously involved. He was pulled up after that but fairly obviously didn’t enjoy that race at all. In my view he is about a 10/1 shot here so 20/1 is far too big.

Sizing Granite showed up a bit better than he has been of late last time out over hurdles. On his best form he wins this pretty easily but he really hasn’t looked like he was putting it in at all. First time cheek pieces and good ground given him a chance of getting interested today and 14/1 is just about value. I don’t really fancy anything else in this race so it doesn’t look the strongest renewal on paper
