Clara More won this a year ago but she's 15lb higher and prefers some give in the ground. City LIne is consistent but has now had 22 starts over timber without winning and the assessor can't drop him in the ratings. Robert Tyner has reverted MIRADOR DEL CONDE back over hurdles after a good run over fences at Tipperary. He's on a mark 22lb lower here and looks the one to beat. Hurricane Jojo has been going well but has gone up three times in the weights without winning and will find this tough. The former Richard Guest-trained Catawollow starts off in Ireland with a lowly weight and if connections have him ready he's one to keep an eye on.
