Ikorodu Road developed into a decent staying chaser last season but reappears over hurdles off a 4lb higher mark than when finishing tailed off at Cheltenham over a year ago. He might need this but Counting House had a spin on the Flat six days ago and could figure while Pericoloso returned to action with a win over 2m3f on heavy ground at Exeter. He's the type to improve further but this stamina test is sure to suit JAUNTY JOURNEY and fitness is rarely an issue for a Nigel Twiston-Davies' runner. He was only beaten a short-head over 3m3f at Perth in April and has placed form over further over fences. South O'The Border looks to be on a downward curve so Ambrose Princess may be best of the rest as Arkose has been off the track for a while.
