    Verdict

    Jumpandtravel landed a course and distance seller earlier in the campaign and hasn't run badly since but HASSADIN relished the front-running tactics employed last time when a convincing Fontwell winner and hopefully similar tactics, which are well suited to this sharp track, will be employed once again. The runner-up that day has performed well since and he can defy a 7lb rise in the ratings. It's hard to know if the move to hurdles will suit Slidecheck but his yard is shrewd and he's the one to note in the market but Running Wolf looks the likeliest threat to the selection. He's looked an improved sort over timber the last twice and is already proven at this venue.
