Charlie Hall Chase Runner-by-Runner Guide

Black Corton - 3/1

Trainer: Paul Nicholls

Jockey: Bryony Frost

Previous winner over this tip. Won Grade 2 Novices Chase in fine style back in February. If ready to go first time out has big chance.

Double Shuffle - 4/1

Trainer: Tom George

Jockey: A P Heskin

No victory since December 2016 and yet to win in graded company. Consistently hits frame was a length second to Might Bite in King George on Boxing Day.

Definitely Red - 6/1

Trainer: Brian Ellison

Jockey: Danny Cook

Nine-year-old who unseated at Aintree when last seen. Won twice in Graded company last season and undoubtedly has a major chance again. Course and Distance winner.

Virgilio - 7/1

Trainer: Dan Skelton

Jockey: Bridget Andrews

Won twice in lower grade races over the summer after a disappointing season. Will need to recapture form of 2016 and even then it would take a career best.

Regal Encore - 33/1

Trainer: Anthony Honeyball

Jockey: Richie McLernon

Understandably rank-outsider. Constantly finds graded company too much and belongs at listed level.
