Verdict

Enroller has shown no evidence to suggest he'll prove as good over hurdles as he once was on the Flat while Hidden probably needs to improve again on his second to Rowan Tiger at Bangor if he's to go one better here. Questions to answer, too, for High On A Hill after a very modest showing at Hereford but Swaling was second in a decent bumper at Exeter in April and Tuscan Gold wasn't disgraced at Huntingdon last month, despite taking a decent hold. KAZLIAN probably needs to improve his jumping if he's to make an impression at a higher level but clearly has an engine and, despite carrying a penalty for his facile Market Rasen success, is taken to follow up here.
