Verdict

There have been numerous cases of horses doubling-up at the Festival in recent years and FACE VALUE can join them. Ado McGuiness wastes no time bringing him out again after Tuesday's surprise victory over a strong field of hurdlers and with a Flat rating of 63 he looks very well handicapped on his return to the level. One Cool Shabra also ran here on Tuesday but only moderately on the Flat and looks high enough in the weights so it's Enter The Indian who looks the main threat. He's been in very good form over hurdles and was only beaten by the narrowest margin when runner-up to Ionisphere on the Flat at Clonmel in May. Shanrod is still a maiden on the Flat but has scored over timber and looks well enough treated.
