Verdict

Bumper winner Vivona Hill probably needed the run when sixth to Ballabriggs at Ayr at the end of January and should strip fitter here. But he may still struggle to get the better of TIGRE D'ARON, who idled in front when just getting the better of High Ransom on his UK debut. The second franked the form over this C&D next time and the French import should also appreciate this stiffer track. Flaygray showed very little on his hurdling debut at Market Rasen last month while Armedanddangerous might need the experience today and the others appear to have a mountain to climb on all known form.
