Just Amazing may be in need of a confidence-booster and the consistent Coombe Hill makes more appeal. He has the beating of Foynes Island on Taunton form though will struggle to beat TURKO off level weights. Placed in Grade 1 company when trained by Paul Nicholls, the 10-year-old was fifth in last month's Foxhunter Chase at Cheltenham and that form puts him well ahead of today's rivals. Gershwinner is a C&D winner but has been below his best lately and the others have a bit to prove under Rules.
