This may be a case of which of these manages to plod that bit quicker than his rivals. Ukrainian Star is chasing a hat-trick after beating the enigmatic Overton Lad by six lengths over C&D on Boxing Day but is 9lb higher now. Spot The Ball has won two of his three starts over fences, including over 2m6f here on debut. He shouldn't be far away while Western Whisky has the ability to figure if the fences don't get in the way again. KILVERGAN BOY usually finds at least one too good but stays well and won't mind the soft ground. He needs everything to go his way but could be worth an interest in a race that lacks strength in depth.
