Kruzhlinin was a progressive sort over hurdles in the spring and has the scope to make a decent chaser. He has to go on the short-list here while Triptico should also do well over the larger obstacles, though could just find this trip on the sharp side. JET MASTER races with plenty of enthusiasm over timber and was unlucky not to win on a couple of occasions last term after getting off the mark at Perth. He'll probably try to make all again here and could have most of these in trouble if jumping soundly. The mare Kykate may prove the pick of the remainder as Kent Street has proved disappointing so far and Attycran and Snapping Turtle will find easier opportunities than this.
