Official ratings suggests there is nothing between Barrakilla and PERSIAN SNOW. The former hasn't been beaten far at either Catterick or Exeter and should pick up a similar contest soon but there is probably also more to come from Philip Hobbs' gelding, who has his sights lowered a little and is much better than he showed when favourite for a handicap at Kempton last month - he gets the vote. Rio Milan has looked a little one-paced over hurdles but has a chasing pedigree and can't be ignored.
