Martin Chuzzlewit and Theology were both decent sorts on the Flat. Air Of Glory pulled hard and made mistakes on his hurdling debut but will know more here and Hawdyerwheesht, another Flat winner, was third at Fakenham but beaten more than 20 lengths. A Tail Of Intrigue, Deadly Sting and El Massivo all have the form to figure but SWEET DEAL is worth another chance having been sent off favourite at Sandown in December. That form has worked out well and today's better going will suit. Park Place is lightly raced and is an interesting newcomer from a powerful yard.
