Alan King's Dona comes here on the back of an improved performance on his reappearance when landing a handicap at Huntingdon and has to be respected but a penalty for that win makes this tougher and he faces no easy task giving weight away to CLASSIC VINTAGE, who looks an interesting recruit to the hurdling ranks. Trained by Amanda Perrett, the selection comes here fit and in form from the flat where he was rated in the mid 90s and he may be good enough to make a winning debut over timber. Formerly with Jeremy Noseda, Secret World makes his belated debut for Nicky Henderson over hurdles and he could be of interest, while French import Teshali is now with Paul Nicholls and cannot be discounted.
