Verdict

AZZA NAP wasn't disgraced in decent company over hurdles after winning a Listed race at Auteuil last September and made a winning start over fences over 2m4f at Uttoxeter. The drop in distance is unlikely to be a problem on this stiff track and he should take all the beating, though Dealing River has been much improved over timber this summer and is an interesting recruit. Falcarragh and Hallings Comet have also already won over fences and shouldn't be discounted but Baccalaureate is nothing special nowadays.
