Been through the field and it's uninspiring. Not a great renewal. Normally I like some course form but for those who have ran before there aren't many with place form (on the fringe and Balnaslow are 2 exceptions). Given the prevailing soft ground I sense some value elsewhere and I like Distime, whom I've taken at 25s. He is not the quickest but has been placed before over CD, including 3rd on soft to Bennys Mist. the ground might slow the others down and he's taken to get the gold medal this time.

I’m with you on this one Fistful, though I only started looking at today’s card late yesterday evening and only got 16/1.Sad

Grand Vision is tailor made for these fences, I think he will get in a rhythm and will be tough to beat.  A more speculative choice is Rouge Et Blanc, seems to have had a new lease of life this year and at 80/1 I am hoping I get a bit of a run.

I completely agree with all of this Swardean and am on both too.

Another Distime supporter here.

As mentioned by Fistful,that sefton form looks decent in the context of todays race.The unseat last year looked pretty soft,surrounded by plenty others and it was the chair,normally a safe jumper with experience around here.Decent jockey aboard,no doubt a few will go off mad,even over 2m 5f pace will be key,we could see something come from well off the pace if they go a stride too fast.

Also had a nibble on Eddies Miracle,couple of Falls in his form would normally be the kiss of death,however they both were late on when in contention.His jumping at down royal was neat and nimble,not the biggest, he normally likes to be up there,again decent pilot who knows the horse.

Always interesting which lines these amateurs take,never too concerned about ratings around here,all about trying to get into a rhythmn,giving your horse a decent look at the fences on approach,should give us a clue for the big one.
