Faced what now looks to have been an impossible task last time when runner up to L’Homme Presse who has since proven himself one of the best novice chasers this season. Gunsight Ridge beat the rest of the field upwards of ten lengths and races here off just a 3lb higher mark. That was only his 2nd start over fences, so no doubt further improvement to come. He’s proved himself on soft ground over hurdles, so the forecast rain isn’t an issue. He’s potentially a good deal ahead of the handicapper and getting weight from his opposition here, he looks very much the one to beat.
