Major Snugfit may be a couple of pounds too high but could figure in a race like this if in the mood. Rukwa wasn’t disgraced on the Flat last month but this race sees a rematch between My Poem and INCE. The pair were fourth and first respectively at Worcester last month and the latter can come out on top again, despite less favourable terms. Good Bye probably deserves a change of luck but a record of 0-16 over hurdles is off-putting. Stigwood looks best of the rest.
