There are 12 runners declared at the moment, so it is a case of first come first served.

Here we go then with the draw:

bigwiglaf:

11 2-1141P Real Steel 7 11-10 T: W P Mullins J: B S Hughes 66/1

About:

Outsider of the trio from this yard; sixth in the RSA last year summing up his level of ability. Twice a Grade 2 winner this season over 2m4f he performed abysmally last time (pulled -up) behind Chris's Dream; stamina/ability doubts hard to overcome.

Sarah:



12 1/132-11 Santini 8 11-10 T: N J Henderson J: Nico de Boinville 9/2

About:

Twice Festival placed (Albert Bartlett/RSA); far from impressive when odds-on for his seasonal return at Sandown (scrapped home). Given a wind op/break, produced a far more convincing run when winning Cotswold Chase; merits close consideration.

King Rollo



7 1U1-142 Kemboy 8 11-10 T: W P Mullins J: Mr P W Mullins 9/1


About:

Top-class chaser; won all his three (Grade 1) completed starts last season, only failure came in this (unseated first). Bounced back with two Grade 1 wins; not quite managed to match his best form this season; second to Delta Work last time.

10 1/18-353 Presenting Percy 9 11-10 T: P G Kelly J: D N Russell 11/1


About:

Dual Festival winner (Pertemps/RSA); beaten favourite in this last year (eighth) having not been seen over fences since winning the RSA (never travelling well). Brought along steadily this year, only third to Delta Work/Kemboy last time; work to do.

5 13-1411 Delta Work 7 11-10 T: G Elliott J: M P Walsh 5/1


About:

Good Festival record; won the Pertemps Hurdle prior to finishing third in last year's RSA (Santini second). Needed the outing on reappearance, since taken the two Grade 1's (Savills Chase/Irish Gold Cup); 6-8 over fences, jumps/stays well, shortlist.

SevenSeize


9 214-P32 Monalee 9 11-10 T: H De Bromhead J: Rachael Blackmore 25/1


About:

A frequent Festival visitor (runner-up Albert Bartlett/RSA) he's often come up short at this level but bounced back to his best last time in the Grade 1 Savills Chase. Gave Delta Work a fair race (had the run of the race); stamina doubts remain.

Mack


3 215-P11 Chris's Dream 8 11-10 T: H De Bromhead J: Aidan Coleman 25/1

About:

One of two runners from this yard he's a progressive chaser having won the Troytown (handicap debut) at Navan plus a Grade 2 (Red Mills) at Gowran Park last month. Overcame the drop back in trip (2m4f) last time; needs to improve but lively outsider.

About:

Two previous tries in this resulted in a seventh (2017) and a creditable third last year. Runner-up in both his Grade 1 starts this season including at his beloved Haydock; has work to do with Lostintranslation and Santini who beat him last time
