Roi De Garde will take all the beating if lining-up but has a preferred engagement at Market Rasen. Knockando won over hurdles here back in January but has shown nothing in four subsequent starts and the vote goes to SOUDAIN, He scored over timber last year and ran well until running out of steam on his comeback and chasing debut at Market Rasen last month. He should strip fitter here while Avenging Ace is superior to Mannered over timber but neither have shown any worthwhile form over fences so far.
