Kilshannig isn't easy to catch right and finished tailed off on his reappearance over hurdles at Uttoxeter but Bob Will has been in good form in the main, though wasn't quite at his best when runner-up at Wetherby on his latest start. Hardwick Wood also has a bit to prove after disappointing at Fontwell last month while Muntami has only managed one place in six previous tries over the bigger obstacles. WALLS WAY never ran two races alike over hurdles but was decent when on song and only beaten a length-and-a-half at Wincanton on his penultimate start. He was tailed off at Ffos Las next time but there's just a chance that fences will help him concentrate more and he could be worth a punt in an ordinary contest.
