Verdict

Previous course winner RASHAAN holds the strongest claims in this feature contest. A talented all round performer, he was possibly a shade flattered when beating Apples Jade here in November, and whilst over 2m, that is by far and away the strongest recent hurdles form on offer. Fagan is yet to be tested outside of novice company (albeit very strong form), and he has a few questions to answer with his progress stunted since his Albert Bartlett career best. Therefore, Marinero should give the selection most to think about. He's lost his way over fences, but was previously talented over hurdles, and did win over 2m6f at this track in the past.
