Dual Flat winner VOSNE ROMANEE kept on well enough when second at Market Rasen on his hurdling debut to suggest he can go one better here. He had the more-experienced Intermath more than four lengths behind at the Lincolnshire track and that form looks stronger than Zephyr's 14-length second at the same course earlier. Intermath finished ahead of Arthur's Melody and Bountiful Sin at Uttoxeter in June but jumping newcomers Officer Drivel and Full Day are worth a second look as both performed at a decent level on the Flat.
