Verdict

Paul Nicholls used to train Dolatulo so should have a good idea of his ability in relation to TIGRE D'ARON. Rated 120 over hurdles last season, he didn't pull up any trees in a light campaign but should land this if his jumping is up to scratch. Traditional Bob will be all the better for his run over a shorter trip at Newton Abbot at the start of the month but Global Power is much more interesting. Very highly tried over the smaller obstacles, he hasn't won since 2010 but has already been successful between the flags and that experience will stand him in good stead now.
