Maggio has won three times over hurdles at this track, including his latest start. But he'll need to improve on his previous efforts over fences to trouble KRUZHLININ. Donald McCain's charge won here early in the year and should have come on for a recent pipe-opener at Aintree. Rolecarr is a course and distance winner but arrives out of sorts but Sa Suffit has claims on his best form though he hasn't won since 2010. The inconsistent Aneyeforaneye makes most appeal of the remainder if on a going day.
