Wintered Well blotted his copybook when pulled up at Cheltenham but he's back in the right grade here. Toowoomba was beaten 20 lengths off this mark at Leicester in January but is lightly raced and a similar comment applies to Fine Words. Revani finally fulfilled earlier promise at Exeter last month and is preferred to stablemate Bathwick Brave while Red Admirable has a chance on his best form, though was behind URCALIN at Towcester in the autumn on more favourable terms. David Arbuthnot's hurdlers are usually worth a second look here and Josh Moore's mount is no exception. He has been competing at a higher level and gets good ground for the first time since scoring at Stratford just over a year ago.
