Raise Hell has yet to win over fences and has been in poor form while Zane Grey hasn't had much experience and may find this tough. OLD SUPPORTER is generally consistent at this sort of level and though not a prolific winner looks to have as good a chance as any in an ordinary race. Raydari has only run twice over fences and appears to have enough weight while Sweet Sylvia has never got anywhere close in four starts over fences.
