Verdict

Nataani won twice over fences in the summer and reverts to hurdles with confidence sky-high. It would be no surprise if he went close while Mr Moss has also won twice over fences. Chargen was only beaten a head by Wayward Glance over C&D last month and has been much-improved lately but One Wish fell on his debut under Rules at Bangor while Alpancho may need today's experience. My Lad Percy won a bumper here in June but McCoy rides stablemate GOD OF THE KOP who was last seen contesting a bumper at the Punchestown Festival in April. It looks like he's held in some regard and his pedigree suggests he'll make a decent stayer this season over hurdles so he gets the vote.
