Formscan By Gary Carson - Chasing always looked likely to be BOSTON BOB's true calling and it would be a shock if he didn't get off the mark at the first time of asking here. Having been a point-to-point winner in the past the switch to the fences now should prove no worry and given the level of form he showed over hurdles last season, when his sole defeat came at Cheltenham, connections must be hoping he can achieve as much if not even more over the larger obstacles. You Must Know Me is an interesting rival and may be the one to give him most to do. He is lightly raced and although he made only one start over hurdles last season it was an impressive performance. He's a bit of an unknown quantity and has a long way to go to prove himself in the same league as Boston Bob but he thrashed a smart sort in Shrapnel in Tipperary last April and could be a decent prospect himself. Dont Back Down has shown a fair level of ability in three chase starts to date and should be thereabouts for minor honours.
