The Veterans Handicap Chase Final has attracted a big field of 16 and it’s great to see the old boys compete against each other for such a valuable prize. As it’s a handicap the highest rated horses carry more weight and the classy French Opera is attempting to give weight away to all. That’s a big ask and I’m also not sure he will see out three miles on soft ground around here as well as some of the others.

One horse guaranteed to get home is the David Pipe-trained SOLL, a course and distance winner on heavy ground and back to his best when fourth in the Becher Chase last time. In making a case for him you also have to consider RELAX, who is 3lb better off with the Pipe horse for their close duel at Newbury in February. He looked in need of his first run back when finishing well beaten and his trainer Venetia Williams, who is renowned for getting her charges back to form from nowhere, is likely to have targeted the 11-year-old at this.

They are big enough prices – 8/1 and 10/1 respectively with bet365 – to back them both.
