Overdante would have a shout if reproducing the same level of form as his win at Doncaster in February. However, he's not one to rely on and GOOCHYPOOCHYPRADER is the more consistent. The latter has been competing in tougher races than this, winning two of her last four starts, and can go in again in this company. Capellini opened his account over hurdles with victory over a shorter trip here three weeks ago and he makes more appeal than selling hurdle winner Maccabees and recent Towcester third Bach On Tow.
