Grand National-winning owner Raymond Mould owns RANSOM NOTE so it's probably no surprise to the Grade 2-winning miler trying his hand over hurdles. If he's going to get home over hurdles it will be at a course like Kempton and the five-year-old should outclass these. Golden Hoof has a NH pedigree and should improve on his second in a bumper at Stratford while Rysbrack was taking on decent opposition at Cheltenham last month. Fakenham third Chain Of Events and fellow Flat winner My Lord may be best of the rest.
