Richard Hughes picks up the ride on Tae Kwon Do which suggests another big run is expected from the six-year-old having gone close at Yarmouth last time. However, winning hurdler KAHSABELLE is dropped in class for her return to the Flat and, with Harry Challoner taking 5lb off her back, she may just have the edge in this. Ctappers is another to have scored over hurdles recently but has yet to win on the level so Zarosa makes more appeal as she was sent off favourite at Yarmouth last week, though could only manage a well-beaten third.
