Has a serious chance here. Races from 3lb out if the handicap but jockeys 3lb claim negates that.
Has done well for Sophie Leech winning a decent hcap chase in france on his only previous chase run for her. Remains very well handicapped, only 2 years ago he carried top weight in this race and ran off a mark of 158 when 7th of 15. Comes into the race in form and with a big chance here. Most of the shorter priced rivals have question marks against them.
Has some decent cheltenham form throughout his career including 4 festival runs.
He isnt as good as he once was but he shouldnt be ruled out here off this lowly mark.

The best bet of the day by a long way.
