Verdict

Strobe's last three victories have come at Perth and he's on a career-high mark now over fences. Attycran is probably also a few pounds too high now but Rossini's Dancer is starting to come down the weights and should strip fitter for a pipe-opener over hurdles. ETXALAR finished more than 10 lengths behind Strobe at Perth but will have needed the run and stayed on nicely once getting his second wind. He's 7lb better off now and can turn the tables with a useful amateur taking off 7lb. He's preferred to stablemate Ultra Du Chatelet, who is having his first run in this country over fences.
