At The Races Verdict

Clan Des Obeaux warrants respect as he bids to go one better than when chasing home Kemboy in this race two years ago, but he has looked a little flat in two starts since a gruelling comeback in the Betfair Chase and connections now feel the need to fit cheekpieces. Waiting Patiently goes back out in trip after a solid enough third in the Clarence House and will likely run his usual honest race, while Kempton handicap winner Clondaw Castle could be the one that's overpriced. Tiger Roll faces a much different test than when romping home in the Cross Country race at Cheltenham, and NATIVE RIVER is probably the most solid option. There was no disgrace in his Gold Cup effort last time and he has a solid Aintree record, winning on two of his past three visits. Jonjo O'Neill Jr could be allowed to dictate matters aboard the 11-year-old and he will prove tough to peg back if getting into a rhythm on the front end.

Timeform Verdict

This has an open look to it, with WAITING PATIENTLY taken to gain another deserved success at the top level in the hope he is ridden slightly more positively with 3m on this flat track looking ideal. Cheekpieces may help Clan des Obeaux travel with a bit more zest and he is a huge threat, while 11-y-os Tiger Roll and Native River add further intrigue to the race.
