Verdict

Elenika may struggle to reverse Ascot running with Fairy Rath and subsequent Ayr score Conquisto here and stable companion Aikideau simply doesn't look good enough. Attaglance didn't run badly in the Liverpool Hurdle last time but his form over fences is moderate to say the least. Dolatulo is improving at a rate of knots, however, and was impressive when completing his hat-trick at Chepstow while Dare Me finally got off the mark in a three-runner race over course and distance in March. Tony Star has a chance if ignoring his latest run here but the handicapper hasn't done Ayr winner Ulysse Collonges any favours. KING OF THE NIGHT looks well treated on his first venture into handicap company over the larger obstacles and has the pace to cope with the drop in distance - he may just represent a bit of value.
