A nice prize has attracted a decent line-up with Sea Lord chasing a five-timer after gaining the most impressive victory of his career to date in the Summer Hurdle at Market Rasen last time, though whether he's improving quickly enough to defy a further 13lb hike in the weights is debatable. Solaras Exhibition has gone up 10lb for a five-length win at Stratford and may struggle but Hawkshill was highly tried last season, though hasn't raced since December. AZIF still looks well weighted after beating a subsequent winner by 28 lengths at Bangor. He can take this step up in grade in his stride, though the quicker ground will also suit Shadow Catcher.
