KAZLIAN was no match for the more experienced Unknown Rebel at Market Rasen last month. The form of that contest is questionable but David Pipe's Sinndar gelding will have learned plenty and should recoup losses here against modest opposition. Louxor Des Mottes looks the danger as he was sent off favourite at Huntingdon on his hurdling debut and can also improve, though newcomer Zarazar is closely related to the useful Polar Champ.
