Verdict

Attaglance was the best of these over hurdles last season but was never travelling with any conviction on his chasing bow at Carlisle and was pulled up at the second last. He'll need to do much better here because HILDISVINI looked a natural when scoring over C&D last month and should confirm that running with runner-up Well Regarded, despite the penalty. Muldoon's Picnic was third over a longer trip at Wetherby and My Brother Sylvest filled the same position over 2m at Kempton and both should improve but Five Rivers may be a better long-term prospect.
