Adrimel for trainer Tom Lacey is the current favourite for this event and looks to be the right market leader possessing some decent form.
The six year old was a bright bumper horse winning his first two events nicely and he was then sent into the Champion Bumper at the Cheltenham festival and was unfortunately outclassed.
The form of that race always works out when the runners are sent over hurdles and Adrimel has obliged this term over flights, winning nicely on debut at Sandown in October.
He was then upped slightly in class last time out at Haydock and again was a strong winner, handling the heavy ground very well.
Lacey has decided to step him up in trip today to 2m5f and if handling this looks to be the one to beat.
