Having made a remarkable rise through the ranks, Flooring Porter was dominant when landing this race 12 months ago. HE is an RSA Chase winner in 2020 and has proved he remains equally effective over timber when winning the Long Walk on return.

High-class hurdler who landed 2019 Supreme and registered pair of Grade 1s 8 months apart last year, beating Flooring Porter at Leopardstown over Christmas. Below par latest but type to bounce back.

Good record over hurdles, impressing with attitude when landing Gr1 Liverpool Hurdle at Aintree in April. Good second behind Champ in Long Walk in December and he arrives here fresh.

Here is the prize money that is up for grabs for the lucky top eight who place in this one. A huge £182,878 available for the winner. Tidy.

This is who the bookies are tipping as favourites and it is indeed Flooring Porter who catches the eye of the punters. Flooring Porter takes the pick at first place, with Klassical Dream and Thyme Hill shortly behind.
