Verdict

Twice a winner over fences at the end of last season, DOLATULO can add to his tally over hurdles by taking this contest. Last month's second at Stratford will have blow any cobwebs away and he's preferred to Munsaab. The latter will also have come on for a recent reappearance but one win in 15 starts over timber doesn't boost confidence. Orabora is lightly-raced and should have a successful season but Foxcub couldn't cope with a 17lb hike in the weights last time having won over track and trip before that. This is tougher than the seller won by Imperial Stargazer last month and Maller Tree looks in the handicapper's grip.
