PreviewsSire Du Berlais is 7lb higher than when winning this race 12 months ago, but his three outings so far this season have all been to a decent standard and the application of first-time blinkers could potentially eke out some improvement. However, a chance is taken on another JP McManus-owned runner in the shape of A GREAT VIEW. He was a big eye-catcher when flying home to finish sixth in this contest two years ago and posted another cracking effort at the Punchestown Festival one month later, landing a similarly competitive handicap. Denis Cullen's nine-year-old produced his best performance since when third in a qualifier last time and, with this likely to have been the plan for a while, he can run a big race under Mark Walsh. Jatiluwih won impressively here in November and could well reverse Wincanton form with Third Wind, while 2018 Champion Bumper scorer Relegate and Gordon Elliott's The Storyteller are just a couple more with claims in a wide-open renewal.
