It's hard to oppose CHAPMANSHYPE here after his winning debut over fences at Fontwell when he saw off the odds-on Eglantine Du Seuil by close to three lengths, keeping on well over the two and a half miles. Already a decent hurdler, peaking with an official rating of 146 after winning at Kelso, he ought to maintain his unbeaten start over fences here barring any mishaps. Denise Foster's Santana Plessis has to be of interest making his chasing bow, but he was beaten 42 lengths last time out over hurdles at Punchestown and although he has winning form at Kilbeggan in a bumper and over hurdles, he needs to step up on that to get involved here. Seven De Baune wasn't disgraced last time out when third at Ludlow but he really ought to find the company too hot for him here.
