Verdict

Sea Saffron is rated higher over fences but could only manage third over these hurdles back in May. Russie With Love won a novice hurdle last season but has a lengthy absence to overcome and preference goes to LEADER OF THE GANG. He has a more recent fourth to Poet at Newbury to his credit and David Pipe's charge will have come on for that reappearance run. Master Benjamin was still thereabouts when unshipping his rider in the latter's race at Newbury while Xaarcet and Timetoring both finished closer last time and could figure along with Bincombe.
