Princely Hero is at the top of his game and, though climbing the weights again, isn't out of this. Old Dreams is starting to look well handicapped while it's too soon to give up on Whistling Senator. RUDIGREEN won at Sedgefield before running with credit in a decent handicap at Downpatrick and could be good enough to take this, though Dom Lukka won twice over fences in his native France and tackles the larger obstacles here for the first time since joining Charlie Longsdon. Nothingbutthetruth was second over course and distance last month but never figured at Ffos Las subsequently and is 5lb higher now.
