RUMBURY GREY has been one of the revelations of the hunter chase season to date but there is the concern that he might just be going to the well once too often. However, he's a tough, resolute character and remains hard to oppose as he pursues the five timer. Shoudhavenownbettr was sharpened up for this with a recent pointing success and has very solid hunter chase form in the book this term. He should get involved, likewise Coombe Hill who has been a splendidly consistent advertisement for the training skills of Charlotte Tizzard. Massimo completes the shortlist.
