This looks tricky with the majority exposed but the youngest member of the field, TURF TRIVIA, looks open to improvement off a workable mark. George Moore's gelding made a winning hurdling debut here last August but after following up at Kelso appeared to lose his way somewhat. However, he was right back to form at Wetherby last time when only done on the line by Patriot in a competitive heat and can go one better here. Trip and ground are fine. Benmadigan was travelling nicely when falling last time and continues to suggest that we have yet to see the best of him. He remains of interest, whilst the consistent Stand Clear, recent winner Scotswell and Irish raider Maolisa are others to note in an open affair.
