Verdict

Kind Of Easy clearly has plenty of ability but is not the best jumper of fences and was lucky to survive more blunders when scoring on his reappearance at Fontwell. He'll be under more pressure here though Well Hello There also has a bit to prove after a less-than-convincing performance at Ffos Las. Bendant can also make mistakes and neither Alderluck nor Rydalis have been foot-perfect in the past. Chepstow third Gas Line Boy may need more time while it's two years since Arkose last ran over fences, though he stays well. REGAL PRESENCE has only run once over the larger obstacles so far but wasn't disgraced at Towcester in May and could be well handicapped here judged on the pick of his hurdles form - he gets a tentative vote in an open race.
