THE KNOT IS TIED (NAP) looks the interesting one in this. Placed in all three starts over timber so far, he won over 2m on heavy going on the Flat at Haydock in the autumn so will love conditions. Twenty Twenty was too keen on his handicap debut at Fontwell but has done most of his racing so far on the Sussex track. Percy Prosecco has a chance against the selection on collateral form but there are concerns about the going while Katpoli was disappointing last time at Wincanton against older horses. Needs To Be Seen is also engaged tomorrow at Musselburgh.
