Prince Massini, who won six times under Rules at a minor level, arrives in good shape having won his last two between the flags. Shootin The Breeze is the highest rated of these having won at Thurles a year ago but pulled up on his return to action at Newbury last month. Surenaga is a decent performer at this level and between the flags where he's won six times but Bermuda Bob, though very consistent, has been beaten at short prices on his last nine starts and is hardly one to risk the mortgage on. The Rubber Man looks outclassed so this can go to BOB 'N' YOU. Hilary Parrott's charge has never recovered his very smart novice form over both hurdles and fences but still retains enough ability to take this before heading for Cheltenham's National Hunt Chase.
