Master Overseer has been placed at 12/1 to regain the title he won last year. With eight career wins, including two in his last three starts, Master Overseer has been there before and is an interesting option. To consider, however, is the fact that no horse has ever won this race more than once, and that no horse aged ten years old or over has won this race since 1995. Master Overseer is now ten years old.

The early odds favourite is bay gelding Well Refreshed, who comes into the race with three wins on the trot (and four in his last five), two of which have come this year already. The nine year old’s owner, Patrick Wilmott, will be confident that his horse can deliver him his sixth win from his seventeenth start. Chac Du Cadran, winner of the North Yorkshire Grand National Handicap Chase in January at 11/2, takes his place alongside Well Refreshed at the top of the early odds tables. The seven year old gelding has won two races in the last five years, however.

The race also features No Secrets and maybe Monbeg Dude, winner of the Welsh National in February, who was also entered in the Cheltenham Gold Cup Challenge scheduled to take place on Friday. No Secrets has won his two last races, the last of which was in February at Wetherby. Storm Survivor and Carruthers further make up a strong field. Carruthers, the 30 race veteran, came through with the win at 6/1 in the William Hill Wales National Handicap Chase in February and will be looking for his tenth career win on Saturday.

The going at Uttoxeter will be Soft. The race takes place on Saturday at 16:50 CET/ 11:30 EST.
