Abruzzi beat Up To Something on similar terms at Towcester in December. There is unlikely to be much to choose between the pair again today with Ben Poste taking 5lb off Tom Symonds' charge, though both were pulled up in better company last time. We'll give another chance to DARLEY SUN as former Cesarewitch winner and Godolphin inmate has been placed in both runs to date over hurdles, though was odds-on at Huntingdon last time. It's difficult to make much of a case for any of the others.
