Yabora should go close under his amateur rider if fully wound-up following a two-month absence, but Not Sure Dick and Briefcase are probably best watched following longer breaks. Tae Kwon Do won over 2m4 here in May but has struggled off higher marks since, while Baan may also need some help from the handicapper if he's to get his head in front. Big Bad Boo needs to step up on what he's shown so far so we'll go with PRINCELY HERO, who has been in fine form over fences lately and doesn't look too badly treated back over the smaller obstacles.
