The Sportsman's Verdict
Paul Nicholls has won four of the last 10 renewals of this race and his defending champion PRESENT MAN has a standout chance of making it back-to-back victories in the feature contest at the venue off a mark just 2lb higher than last season, and on ground which should suit. Stablemate El Bandit is interesting making his first start since romping to victory in a Warwick novice chase back in the summer of 2017 and the Grade 2-winning hurdler, along with Captain Buck's, who had a nice sighter of the course and distance last month, makes this a formidable Ditcheat line-up. Aunty Ann was successful in that aforementioned race over track and trip and appears the pick of Charlie Longsdon's duo, while Bigbadjohn thrived here last time and a 2lb rise shouldn't hinder him too much as he's seemingly loving life now with Nigel Twiston-Davies.
