Winning pointer who was first past the post on his Fontwell chase debut only to demoted for causing interference. That was a promising start and there should be more to come from him over fences.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

PONTRESINA was denied a winning chase debut in the stewards' room but he's open to further progress in this sphere and may be capable of gaining compensation. Mr Mafia seemed to overdo the front-running tactics at Warwick last time so probably remains in form and may provide the chief threat ahead of Top Decision.

Betting Forecast

5/1 Top Decision (Ire), 10/3 Pontresina (Ire), 10/1 Top Up The Fashion (Ire), 8/1 Mortens Leam, 8/1 Mr Mafia (Ire), 20/1 Nightline, 9/1 Poker School (Ire), 10/1 Raven's Tower (Usa)
