Verdict

Brendan Powell trained last year's winner and MORESTEAD gets another chance to take advantage of his lower mark over hurdles. Fourth over C&D last time when Balustrade was tailed off, he won't get many better opportunities than this. Winning chaser Pharaon De Touzaine reverts to hurdling on his first start since August 2011 but still looks the main danger as both Duneen Point and Jamesson arrive badly out of sorts though the former has dropped another 6lb in the weights.
