Phillip Hobbs has taken the last two renewals of this race but Vieux Lille will have to improve upon his chasing debut if he is to make it a hat-trick for his trainer, although he cannot be discounted based on his hurdles form last season. Label Des Obeaux was a bit disappointing in the second half of last season, given that he was a Grade 2 winner at Sandown in December. That said, he was highly tried on a couple of occasions and should only improve for going over fences. AMERICAN accounted for Label Des Obeaux when the pair met in a novice hurdle at Ascot a year ago and he was dropped into a highly-competitive Grade 2 at Fairyhouse on his sole subsequent start. A winning pointer, this son of Malinas could prove to be well above average in this sphere. Missed Approach and Private Malone are also worthy of consideration.
