August Hill has already won three times over hurdles this year and possibly found 2m4f too far on her latest start. She'll go close in this if adapting to the larger obstacles as she has a 7lb mares' allowance and gets 13lb from WOODBANK. But Dan Skelton's charge has the ability to win this if returning to the form which saw him beat Dark Lover at Huntingdon in April - he's been taking on better opposition since. Academy General was second over track and trip last time but never threatened the winner and Just Archie may need more time.
