JOE FARRELL has scraped in at the bottom of the weights and is my main fancy. He will relish the stamina test having won the Scottish National last spring.
VINTAGE CLOUDS is ahead of the handicapper after his second in the Ultima at the Cheltenham Festival recently.
STEP BACK cruised home to win the bet365 Gold Cup last spring beating Rock The Kasbah very easily. This nine-year-old has more to come over fences.
ROCK THE KASBAH goes well fresh and has not run since December. Bidding to give Champion Jockey Richard Johnson his first win in the world-famous race.
