To Begin showed little on the Flat but might improve on his debut over hurdles at Fontwell earlier this month as he has won a point-to-point. He holds Cotton King on the form book but should prove no match for BENISSIMO, who is likely to start at very short odds having got off the mark at this track 11 days ago to fulfill earlier promise. Finnegan's Garden looks a very modest performer.
