Verdict

First Mohican had Fair Loch behind when making a winning debut at Doncaster but was a little disappointing when only fourth in a Grade 2 at Kempton three weeks ago. The form of that race hasn't really worked out and OSCAR HOOF could have his measure here. Nicky Henderson's charge found Zamdy Man too good in a Listed race at Haydock in November but made no mistake at Doncaster next time over a longer trip and is fancied to follow up. No Such Number has had a couple of runs on the all-weather since making a winning debut at Southwell but may find this company too hot and the four-year-old Fitzwilly was readily brushed aside here last time. Newcomer Solar Sky is best watched returning from a lay-off but Devon Drum could have each-way claims and Markttag has some scope.
