DANSILVER has had a couple of runs here this year in between hurdling and won on both occasions. He scored over 1m5f a week ago but landed a race over C&D back in January and Jim Best's charge is worth sticking with in his current form. Prince Charlemagne has been placed recently without looking like winning and remains a shade high in the weights, while Maydream went close over a shorter trip at Kempton last time but has something to prove over today's distance. Sommersturm has been hurdling without success but has yet to race over 2m on the Flat and is worth noting.
