Verdict

OPERA BUFF scored easily over 1m6f in testing ground at Salisbury last time so should last home over this longer trip. He gets a token vote. Harry Hunt has been in decent form over fences including a second for today's rider while Leighton Aspell rode the winner of this in 2009 and teams up with Minneapolis. Eshtyaaq beat Our Folly, Ampleforth and Sunny Future over 2m1f at Bath recently and Kashgar and Four Nations are others to consider.
