Dancing Tornado has been running well enough over the smaller obstacles and could be thereabouts back chasing but the vote goes to JADANLI. He hasn't raced since January when third at Gowran but is the best of these over fences and can make a winning return. Scholars Mate has the more recent form though he was still beaten a distance when third on his latest start and Doctor Woodfield would probably be more of a danger with a repeat of his C&D victory back in March.
