Master Red has got his act together lately, winning at Newcastle and Wetherby, but has to give at least 14lb to his rivals. Tiananmen ran on the Flat in France but has been off the track for almost four years. BREAKING THE BANK has won four times on the Flat up to 1m2f and was far from disgraced on his hurdling debut at Stratford when he looked in need of the run. Ben Case's charge looks a decent bet here to overturn the likely favourite. Eaton Rock and Newforge House have both been placed in bumpers but Stratford third Road To Freedom looks more interesting.
