Verdict

It's a while since Home Secretary showed any worthwhile form but the nine-year-old Total Excitement is still capable off this sort of mark. As the only three-year-old guaranteed a run Szabo's Destiny, who had an outing over hurdles 12 days ago, warrants a second look but Gordon Elliott looks to have stronger claims with ALUBARI. He ran really well on his first start for new connections over this trip on the Polytrack at Wolverhampton and will strip fitter here so gets the vote. Citizenship won over hurdles at Punchestown last month and has won on an artificial surface in the past. He also deserves a mention while Prince Of Fashion is only a pound higher than when second over 1m3f here last time and could prove the pick of the remainder.
