Shalamiyr was always travelling well when beat Crack At Dawn by five lengths at Worcester earlier this month. The runner-up is 7lb better off but that may not be enough to turn the tables. Maizy Missile isn't without a chance on her best form while Tri Nations should enjoy this easier task though hasn't shown much spark in recent runs. DRUMLANG goes well fresh and has only had the three runs over fences. He's not badly treated on his form over hurdles and may just be good enough to land this under claimer Robert McCarth.
