GILGAMBOA was fourth in the 2016 Grand National and doesn't have that many miles on the clock relative to an average 10-year-old chaser. This is only his 19th career start and he's expected to follow up his recent 2m6f victory at Down Royal over Venitien De Mai to notch a double. C&D winner Foxrock had won four hunter chases in a row before pulling up in the Irish Grand National last season and is considered the main danger to the selection.
GILGAMBOA got the better of the re-opposing Venitien De Mai on his hunter chase debut at Down Royal on Boxing Day and is fancied to make it 2-2 in this sphere. A borderline smart chaser in his pomp, he is likely to take high rank in the hunter chases at the big festivals during the spring. Venitien De Mai should give another good account but Foxrock rates the main danger.
