Lyssio was rated higher on the Flat than both Amen and Four Nations but all three of them were well beaten on their respective hurdling debuts. A chance is taken that WESTERN PRIZE can make a better fist of it as he was a decent handicapper on the level for Ralph Beckett and will know his job on his first start for Tim Vaughan. Imperial Stargazer was still beaten 14 lengths when runner-up at Wincanton last time and Somchine's second to Suerte Al Salto at the same track looks stronger form.
