Benvolio's two runs so far suggest he isn't one of his yard's brightest prospects and he returns from a break here. We fancy SAMMYS GONE to concede 6lb to the Nicholls horse and the others as he still looks to be on an upward curve and won very easily on his hurdles bow at Hereford last month. Glenwood Prince and High Ville should be thereabouts again, while Hot Whiskey may be capable of better but One For The Boss has been well beaten in two starts over timber and Rocky Bender may need more time.
