ALBORZ won here on soft ground on the Flat and has made a decent start to his hurdles career, winning at Uttoxeter in October and being placed at Bangor and Sandown. He can put that experience to good use today though it will be interesting to see how the unraced Rio De Sivola fares as he has a jumping pedigree. King Of Wing could prove the pick of the remainder though his only win on the level came over 7f as a two-year-old.
