Tilt is edging down to a fair mark and is considered however MOHANAD might prove hard to catch if connections revert to prominent tactics; Battle Group and the progressive Space Telescope look the best of the rest. Sheena West's gelding wasn't disgraced behind Australia Day in the Summer Hurdle here last month and is interesting on his previous form including behind Ghimaar at Worcester. All ground seems to come alike to him and a second career win beckons. Ursis isn't discounted off a mark of 128 despite top-weight, Battle Group has looked a bit mulish at the start of late but is considered off a reasonable mark if putting it all in, whilst Space Telescope may not be straight-forward either but it's hard to crab his two Worcester wins recently; a 10lb higher mark makes life tough however. Edgefour and Cubism are both consistent and off light weights neither should be dismissed too readily, however this can go to Mohanad.
