Verdict

Quito Du Tresor is upped 8lb for his recent win over 2m4f at this track. He's still preferred to Nine Stories, who scored over hurdles here last year and has won two of his three starts over fences. Sleep In First showed progressive form in chases earlier in the year, winning five times. He's not easily dismissed despite being 7lb higher than his latest victory at Hexham, but SWIFT ARROW is preferred. The top weight returned to winning ways at Kelso earlier this month and a 4lb rise doesn't look insurmountable for Donald McCain's charge.
