Faith Jicaro has shown a decent level of form this season but Tuscan Gold has disappointed over hurdles so far, though was taking on decent opposition last time. French import Special Robon should do better this term now he's had to acclimatise while Easydoesit isn't without a chance and makes more appeal that Jersey-based Landolino. GENERAL TING is probably better over further but won over 1m6f on the Flat earlier this year and Lucy Wadham's has booking promising conditional Micheal Nolan here. He can pounce late to land this with Schumpters Lad having reverted to type.
