Rebecca Curtis drops Anger Management into a seller after just one run over hurdles but he'll need to settle better if he's to get home. However despite Tony McCoy switching to ride Anger Management, Jonjo O'Neill's VIMIERO may be the one to beat in this grade despite conceding weight to all bar Hes Our Lad. The latter has a long absence to overcome and seems to reserve his best for Stratford, but Run Along Boy should go well having been placed at Worcester and Southwell in his last two starts.
