Verdict

Thimaar was fancied at Musselburgh last time but dropped away quickly after making the early running and has yet to translate his useful form on the Flat to hurdles. Captain Kelly won a jumpers' bumper at Wolverhampton in January but still gives the impression 3m will be his trip. Wake Your Dreams, on the other hand, has yet to prove he stays this far. Lienosus must be interesting as he's been placed in both a Grade 2 and a Listed contest and should be winning soon but WARDEN HILL was a real eye-catcher behind African Gold here on his hurdling debut. Successful in a bumper on the Polytrack in December, he'll like the better ground and could be the one to beat.
