Verdict

Fayette County has won twice in very testing conditions but there's no reason why he shouldn't be suited by this slightly better ground. He's an obvious threat to all, though CALL THE COPS looks the one to be on. He's won twice on similar going to this and his defeat at Ascot last time came on heavy going over a longer trip. Cool George won a bumper at Exeter and has run his last five races over hurdles there. He's rarely been beaten far and should go well while Morito Du Berlais looks as though he has more to offer. MIlanese was in the process of running a big race when falling at the third last here in December and is one to keep an eye on.
