Thelobstercatcher certainly has every chance here on the form book but he's proved most frustrating over fences and has gone backwards again since second at Ffos Las and Aintree at the start of the summer. Moyode Wood made a promising start under Rules at Southwell and should improve while Trucking Along hinted at ability on his sole start over fences but we like the look of TASHEBA, who was a 150-rated hurdler at one time when with Nicky Henderson. He could be a little unreliable over timber but, now with Sophie Leech, hinted that there was better to come over fences when fourth at Stratford and will know more today.
