San Telm failed to figure in better company having beaten Yesyoucan over these hurdles in October, though the latter went on to score back here last time. Mwaleshi defied a 23lb rise in the weights to land his hat-trick at Wetherby a fortnight ago with Jonathan England's assistance but is up another 13lb today and HOLLOW TREE looks a safer option. He has a recent run under his belt and his defeat of recent Fighting Fifth winner Countryside Flame at Chepstow last season is the best form on offer. Grafite and Top Wood are closely matched on their respective efforts behind the progressive Quaddick Lake and look best of the rest though Hada Men could figure if back to his best.
