Tasfeya steps up in trip and has to come into the reckoning given his stable has won the last two runnings of this contest, while Halyard is still improving judged on last month's winning return at Bath. Goodwood Starlight has been in fine form over hurdles and could make his presence felt, but Dahaam has lost his way of late and Ede's Dot Com and Arashi step up in class. STREET SECRET won his maiden on the turf at Lingfield last time and, with more to come on his handicap debut, Roger Varian's charge gets the vote.
