Betting Tip: @ Bigmartre @ 9/2 with williamhill

Last year’s winner Foxtail Hill should make a bold defence off a 2lb lower mark, while Tommy Silver, who is much preferred over stablemate Modus over this trip, is another well treated runner if bouncing back to his best.

But they’ve all got to go some to stop BIGMARTRE winning first time up for the fourth season in a row. It goes without saying that Harry Whittington’s seven-year-old is best caught fresh and a stiff 2m on decent ground is what he needs to show his best. I’m not sure he is particularly well handicapped on a mark of 148 and both his previous visits here have ended in defeat (once over hurdles). But he’s such a good jumper when allowed to get into a rhythm up front, which is what you need here, and for that reason I’m prepared to take a chance on him at Hills’ 9/2.

Of the rest, Duke Of Navan is a solid 2m handicapper who could go well, although he was getting 8lb from the selection when a short head separated the pair at Doncaster in January and is 4lb worse off today.
