In The Haven appears ideally suited to testing conditions as he showed at Cork last month and today's ground could prove too quick. William Wordsworth started favourite for that race but fell at the second last when in contention and fourth-placed Torremuelle found the 2m1f trip much too short. Thepartysover is still a maiden over fences and hasn't been running well so it's KOREAN who gets the vote. He's been racing mainly over hurdles recently and had a run on the Flat a week ago but his overall form over fences entitles him to respect and he won't mind the ground.
