Barton Cliche doesn't appear to find much when push comes to shove while the handicapper may have got to the versatile Whatshallwedo and Cabbyl Doo is still 4lb higher than when scoring at Hexham more than a year ago, despite a string of indifferent efforts since. Olympian has win five times over hurdles but has only managed two places in nine attempts over fences so the one to beat is probably STORMHOEK. He's starting to come down the weights again and is now only a couple of pounds higher than when successful at Ludlow in January. The drop back to 2m might also help.
