Verdict

Ryan Moore's presence on Degas Art suggests a big run is expected from the winning hurdler, but Irish raider Deutschland is rated much higher over timber though he was well beaten in this last year. However, the best hurdler on show is OVERTURN and he's no slouch on the Flat either. He landed the Northumberland Plate last season and won the Chester Cup in good style last month. In that kind of form, Donald McCain's charge will take all the beating here. Not Til Monday has won his last two starts over 2m on the Flat and he can figure, but Ajaan doesn't win very often nowadays and was well beaten in this race back in 2008. Dayia won a Listed contest in France on heavy ground in November and Olivier Peslier stays loyal, while Halla San could make the frame if back to his best.
