was thrown in at the deep end on hurdling debut in the "Persian War" last month but ran really well to be second and can cope with this drop in trip. Paul Nicholls usually unleashes a smart type in this race and has won it four times in the last five years, and Flic Ou Voyou
showed more than enough on hurdling debut to be considered a big threat. Edwardstone
is another who has shown promise but may have to settle for minor honours in this warm contest.
