Race Tip

Frero Banbou is another on a long list of Venetia Williams-trained chasers that have been highly progressive this season and it is quite feasible that the son of Aspis has more improvement to come, but the vote goes to THYME WHITE. Paul Nicholls' charge was one of the main fancies for this year's renewal of the Grand Annual at the Cheltenham Festival, only to be withdrawn due to the ground, before making a pleasing reappearance at Ascot in late March. That should leave the unexposed chaser in good condition coming here and he holds solid claims. Before Midnight was close up behind Funambule Sivola at Doncaster in January, with the latter subsequently chasing home Energumene in the Champion Chase, and that kind of form puts him in with a big shout. Sky Pirate is worthy of consideration at the top of the weights, with Dancing On My Own, Bold Enough, and Zarkareva leading a three-pronged attack for leading Irish trainer Henry De Bromhead.
