Lawney Hill has a good strike rate here and it may be worth forgiving EL TOREROS a poor run over hurdles at Stratford last month where he won't have enjoyed the rain-softened ground. He'll have had plenty of schooling and can make a winning debut over the larger obstacles. Think Its All Over has ability but has also had plenty of chances but Tempuran was still going well when falling at Southwell and Midnight Thomas might make a chaser. Faustina Pius has already been placed twice over fences but might need some help from the handicapper.
