2:50 Aintree- Lostintranslation 7/2 (0.5pt ew)
Topofthegame deserves to be favourite for this race given his impressive victory in the RSA Chase but a chance is taken on Lostintranslation now he is going up in trip. He bumped into La Bague Au Roil on his first two starts over fences where his jumping slightly let him down but won the Grade 2 Dipper Novices’ Chase at Cheltenham on trials day. He then ran well to finish 2nd behind Defi Du Seuil at both Sandown and in the JLT Chase at the Cheltenham Festival. Topofthegame is a deserving favourite but has shown quirks in the past and might not be at his best at this track.
Lostintranslation should appreciate the step up to 3 miles and looks the only danger to the favourite.
