LITTLE DUTCH GIRL was beaten a fair way when favourite at Ludlow last month but appeared to resent the fitting of blinkers. The fourth has also run well at Doncaster since, however, so the form may not be as bad as first appears and, with the headgear dispensed with again, Nicky Henderson's filly can get her head in front today. Leviathan was a miler on the Flat and seems to be struggling to get home over hurdles but the better ground should help here while Uncle Roger is probably better than he showed at Sandown. Asker, second over course and distance last time, is improving and should be thereabouts while Royal Trooper was a winner on the Flat but may need this.
