Tzora tries his hand over fences again for the first time since 2012. He has every chance on his rating over hurdles but HALLINGS COMET gets another chance. He blotted his copybook when unseating at the first obstacle last time but won his chasing debut at Worcester before that. He has little to fear from the remainder unless Kitegen takes his chance but he was due to run at Market Rasen yesterday. Henwood and Rocket Scientist are hard to fancy on their form over timber.
