Verdict

Master Of The Sea is on a hat-trick after wins at Hereford and Doncaster, though he has struggled over trips in excess of 2m4f in the past. Well Hello There is starting to come down the weights and Curtain Razer is probably capable of better than he's shown so far while Highland Retreat was a good third at Ascot last month, though may not be suited by the drop in distance. MINELLA THEATRE was having his first run over hurdles since 2009 when facing a hopeless task behind Zarkandar over 2m1f at Cheltenham but this trip will be much more to his liking and he's ridiculously well handicapped if translating his chase form to the smaller obstacles. He gets a tentative vote as Kartanian has disappointed so far over timber and this looks a big ask for the four-year-old Spanish Fork.
