MISS EYECATCHER is the only one of these without an official rating but she's 121 over hurdles and looks like being a much better chaser after her very impressive victory at Listowel where she made all and jumped like an old hand. Jack The Wire won a handicap over 2m1f here in July though that was on good ground and he hasn't done so well in testing conditions subsequently. Coffee, four times a winner over hurdles, has performed better than his finishing positions suggest in his last two runs over fences though his winning form has been on quicker going while Marchese Marconi, who is in the same ownership, hasn't shown much aptitude for chasing.
