Verdict

NO HASSLE HOFF (NAP) is rated 3lb higher than Canton Prince over timber and has the benefit of considerable experience over fences, whereas the Vaughan contender makes a chasing debut. The Skelton runner has yet to find the winner's circle over the larger obstacles but has performed with credit on his last two starts, finishing close up on both occasions, and is taken to get off the mark now. Sonic hasn't done too badly on either start over fences but more looks needed now and Tokaramore has yet to find her feet over fences on two starts to date. Sussex Road is rated a mere 44 over fences.
