Sagredo seems flattered by his hurdles rating and has to run from that mark on just his second start over fences. Olympian reverts to fences on a 14lb lower mark than over timber and is in good enough form to get involved but The Boss has been disappointing over fences. Diamond Eclipse has run poorly each time he's faced soft ground and Kusadasi has failed to complete the course in half of his eight starts over fences. GREAT KICKER ran a shocker at Newton Abbot last time but the ground may have been too firm and his previous three efforts points to his chances here.
