Scarlet Prince, a dual winner for Gary Moore on the Flat, did a bit better over hurdles at Tipperary last time and looks best of those with experience though that's not saying much. Saslong showed promise on a couple of occasions for Mark Johnston but didn't appear to enjoy the fast ground on his final start for the yard at Pontefract in September. Kalandisi is well connected and wouldn't be a shock first-time winner but MACBETH should have the measure of these if taking to jumping. He's rated 96 on the level and though never fulfilling early potential his overall form is far superior to anything these rivals have to offer. The Ring Is King arrives in good form after scoring on the Flat here last month and looks the main threat.
