There'll be no hanging about in this as C&D winner Los Nadis has twice made all over hurdles recently and looks a better bet than stablemate Gordonsville, who was beaten off this mark at Doncaster last Friday. Beat The Shower may be in the handicapper's grip now but there are possibilities about the lightly-weighted Mason Hindmarsh, who is back on a winning mark. Lexington Bay is progressing at a rate of knots and may appreciate this first try over 2m but has to give 3lb to JEU DE VIVRE. She should relish the fast pace having just got tapped for toe by the winner when beaten a short-head over 1m6f on fast ground here last time.
