Verdict

Dazinski is starting to look exposed having failed to figure in a novices' handicap at Aintree 11 days ago. Man Of Steel has disappointed in his two hurdles runs to date but there are possibilities about debutant Jean De Florette while Wing Mira also hinted at ability in bumpers and has plenty of scope. JOHNNY OG was pitched in at the deep end in the Persian War here last month but that suggests he's quite highly regarded. He's got a much better chance in this grade so gets the nod unless the market vibes for El Macca are positive.
