Casse Tete is interesting here at a big price. He ran well at the festival last year when not staying 3 miles and has a decent record of winning when down to a reasonable mark. He has jumped poorly this year but if that can be sorted, he could well go close here.

I’m going to forgive Sam Spinner his last 2 runs and give him a chance here at a price that’s worth the gamble. The top of the market looks weak apart from Black Ops. 14/1 is too big and if he does win 33/1 is massive in the Stayers Hurdle.

No matter where you look the form of Jarvey’s Plate is top class. He was beaten just by a grade 1 winner, horses he has beaten have won since. He should be fairly short here and 3/1 seems great value.
