CLOSING CEREMONY has taken on decent opposition in his two runs to date over hurdles. The slight drop in distance might help and Emma Lavelle's charge can make it third-time lucky ahead of penalised mare Tagrita, who was a ready winner at Exeter after a promising third at Newbury. Gallic Warrior may find this too far while former pointers Kudu Shine and Royal Player haven't run for a while but may still be the pick of the remainder.
