Much too good for Dodger Long at Huntingdon (1m5f, good) but couldn't live with the favourite at Hereford and he has something to find on that form; on the plus side, he promises to be suited by going left-handed here (hung that way last time) and the hood might give him a lift.

Was enhancing his stable's fine strike-rate in bumpers this season when scoring decisively at Huntingdon (extended 1m5f, good; 6-1) three weeks ago; ought to be at least as effective over this longer trip (dam won three 3m1f hurdles) and should make a bold bid to defy a 7lb penalty.

Shaped nicely when favourite at Aintree on debut and built on that form when second of nine at Warwick (also soft); may well improve further and he's one of two 4yos with a handy 12lb weight-for-age allowance.
