Jaboticaba may well have made a winning start over fences at Warwick had he not made a mistake at the last but the winner has been beaten since. PERCY STREET throws in the odd bad run but battled to get the better of Space Oddity over hurdles at Wincanton earlier this month and he can follow up here if his jumping stands up to the test. Dandolo Du Gite has placed between the flags and won a hurdle but could find himself outpaced over this shorter trip.
