Verdict

Lord Tomnoddy is lightly-raced for his age but needs to step up on what he's shown so far over fences. Preuty Boy should go close if fully wound-up, however, and you wouldn't discount Honest John if applying similar criteria. KAUTO THE ROC ran his best race over the larger obstacles here last season on his reappearance. He may be the type that goes best fresh and gets a tentative vote today getting weight from the inconsistent Total Rebellion. Go Amwell has won three times at the track over hurdles but is jumping fences late in life.
