Know No Fear, a nine times winner on the Flat, showed promise on his hurdles debut at Huntingdon but is already an eight-year-old and may lack the scope of some of these. Memory Cloth looks a short runner over 2m and was being ridden when falling at Musselburgh last time but COULDHAVEHADITALL has already won a bumper and there was a lot to like about his debut fourth over timber at Ascot. He would probably have been placed had he not made a mess of the last and this could be within his capabilities. Toowoomba had Berkeley Avenue behind when second at Wincanton but gives the impression he'd prefer an extra half-mile while Spin Cast's second at Hexham was nothing special. My Guardian Angel might be best of the rest.
