This is likely to turn into a real slog in the conditions and that will suit IVANHOE. Michael Blanshard's four-year-old won on heavy going over hurdles at Ffos Las last winter and was also successful at Warwick in May on soft ground. Deauville Dancer won over 1m6f at Nottingham last month and will be thereabouts if handling conditions and Our Folly has already won over course an distance on an easy surface, though might need some help from the handicapper to get his head back in front. Big Time Billy has stamina in abundance but she's likely to need this after a year off.
