This is a little easier than some of the tests that ESCORT'MEN has been set this season. His third to Molotof at Warwick two runs ago was a decent effort and he could upset likely favourite Private Equity on this sharp track as Nicky Henderson's charge has been running over longer trips, though did win a race over 1m3f on the Flat in his native France. Ugo won twice over hurdles but was tailed off on his fencing bow at Ludlow while Hoback Junction appears to have lost his way.
