Halling's Wish rallied well to get up close home at Fontwell on his hurdling debut but more is needed in this better race and he may struggle to beat MEMBEROF off level weights. Alan King's recent acquisition won easily for Guy Cherel at Moulins last month and his stable won this last year. Green And White never threatened when fourth at Uttoxeter but there are possibilities about dual Flat winner Hawk High once he gains some experience.
