Akdam beat Lindenhurst by just over three lengths when both were making their hurdling debuts at Hexham. He has a 7lb penalty to overcome here, however, though should again beat distant fourth Precision Strike. It's Only Business won five times on the Polytrack over the winter and has to be of interest but this looks a good opportunity for French import SIROP DE MENTHE to open his account. He was second at Enghien on debut before falling when favourite at Auteuil and may have too much class for these.
