Verdict

The form book points to STREET ENTERTAINER. He scored at Fontwell in May when beating Ittirad a shade cosily. The latter boosted the form when winning here during the week but will do well to reverse running with the former despite slightly better terms. Detroit Red has lost his way since beating Royale's Charter here earlier in the year and Maxi Chop makes more appeal on his latest second over these hurdles. Zarzal has the past form to figure but tends to save his best for fences nowadays.
