MISS TENACIOUS is difficult to get away from in this. Ron Hodges' mare has already won over hurdles and fences here and, despite disappointing at Kempton last time, is the one most likely to reproduce her form. Teshali is potentially well treated on his hurdles form and did show a bit of promise on his chasing bow. He should give the selection most to do as Erdeli appears to be going backwards and Great Kicker's form has also deteriorated over the last 12 months.
