Boss In Boots ran his best race so far when runner-up to Cloudingstar at Warwick and should be thereabouts again, But PHANTOM PRINCE's placed efforts at Wincanton and Stratford look better form and he should be getting off the mark here if handling the step up in distance. The Informant won a Fontwell bumper on Boxing Day but his two runs so far over hurdles have been disappointing and Border Station's sole success so far came when a 66/1 shot in a jumper's bumper on the Polytrack in January. He's one to be wary of now.
