Straidnahanna couldn't handle the step up to Grade 2 company on this track last month but his earlier good form had been on much more testing ground. Count Danilo still looked in need of experience despite making all for a comfortable victory over three rivals on his hurdling debut at Fakenham and this is tougher. KATACHENKO probably didn't have much to beat at Musselburgh last month but looked a nice prospect in making all the running. He faces better opposition here but, with more progress to come, he can complete the double. Garrahalish has been highly tried since his novice success at Towcester and comes up against some improving types.
