Our first fancy in the race at a lovely each way price is the Michael Scudamore trained Mysteree who is an out and out stayer that at the age of 11 has been running in these types of races for the last few years.
In these types of contests you need a horse that stays longer than the actual distance of the race with the big national fences tending to take plenty out of the horses.
With that in mind we have gone with this horse who is proven over four miles let alone three and also enters this contest is highly consistent form.
Mysteree has been lightly raced over the last 10 months only racing twice which could play to his strengths with freshness a huge thing in these type of races.
He finished a narrow second on his final start of last season at Newcastle in the four mile Eider Handicap Chase and was then put away for the season.
He made his return at Kelso in October over 3 miles 2 furlongs and landed a nice Class 2 event which looks a perfect prep run for this event.
