In depth

Verdict

Cruise In Style got off the mark over fences in a small race at Newton Abbot last month and her experience will stand her in good stead in this big field. Hollins and Massena have shown some ability but we'll take a chance on the fitness of UNIK DE NOUGI. Placed three times over fences in his native France, a hurdles run at Lingfield at the end of last year was clearly a sighter and it will be a surprise if he doesn't reverse that form with third Scottish Boogie here. A few of these are likely to leave modest hurdles form behind now tackling the larger obstacles with Foundation Man and Pinkneys Prince top of the list as they have a lot more scope than Lodgician.
