Going: Good (Good to Soft in places)

WINTER LION had a nice pipe-opener for this test when fourth in the Grand Military Gold Cup at Sandown last month and looks poised to get much closer to Baden (first) this time round. The eight-year-old was third behind Monbeg Notorious at Punchestown in December and only a couple of lengths behind the talented Brio Conti at Carlisle back in November. That form stacks up and a 7lb drop from the assessor down to a mark of 122 gives him a great chance here under Paddy Brennan. Red Infantry won a weak race at Warwick last time out, although he is related to Grand National winner Red Marauder and could improve given time.

Kirei on Red Infantry | Tipped at 9/2
Up 13lb for hacking up last time out, arguable whether or not that's more impressive form than Baden's win in the Military Gold Cup as those races don't always work out, 4lb higher than that rival but could well be able to cope with it.
