Verdict

Reginaldinho has been a beaten favourite twice since reappearing after a long absence but hasn't looked at his best. Todareistodo gained reward for his consistency on very heavy ground at Towcester but a 5lb rise won't help while Caulfields Venture was fortunate to finish runner-up here last time in a five-runner event. Blinkers could spur Be My Deputy into action but the safest option looks to be MUJAMEAD. Seven times a winner over hurdles, he's still a maiden over fences but ran well at Towcester last month and today's conditions should prove ideal. Veteran Hever Road is well enough weighted but needs further.
