Hanga Roa will be fancied to go one better after a couple of seconds at Market Rasen. But he was beaten a long way on both occasions and hurdling newcomers SUTTON SID and Ruff Luck were rated higher on the Flat. Chris Gordon's charge has won a couple of times on the Polytrack so should enjoy the fast ground and can take this if jumping adequately. The remainder appear to have little to recommend them.
