Billy No Name has the best form in this and probably needed the run when third at Fontwell a couple of weeks ago. He makes more appeal than Bill Turner's luckless mare Floral Spinner but DREAM DEAL has more scope than both. Fourth in a bumper here last season, the Presenting gelding will enjoy the switch to hurdles and longer trip and merits an interest at the likely odds. Never Says Never looks very one-paced but looks much the best of the others.
