There will be no hiding place over this extreme trip and Martin Hill looks to have found a suitable opportunity for his admirable veteran, BOLD PERK. A winner over fences at Wincanton and Fontwell, he is rated significantly lower over hurdles and should have no issues in relation to trip and going. Palace Jester has struggled over fences but it's worth remembering that he won a hurdle off a mark of 135 at Chepstow a couple of seasons ago. Similarly, Qulinton was third in the Summer Plate at Market Rasen last season and he will take his chance off a rating some 17lb lower this afternoon. Qualviro is yet to race on ground as quick as this but the former Jim Culloty inmate has shaped with promise on two recent outings at Stratford. Ahead Ahead is in good heart and appears the pick of the remainder.
