Verdict

Frontier Dancer just held off the attentions of Caddie Master in testing ground over 3m at Ffos Las earlier this month but the latter is fancied to reverse running back on a faster surface. Sivola De Sivola never looked like winning but acquitted himself well in Grade 2 company at Cheltenham last time after landing a couple of lesser events and could figure, while Like Minded has some decent form to his credit and is not easily dismissed on his reappearance and preferred to stablemate Prince Tom. However, KASBADALI made a winning return at Ludlow recently and, as this longer trip looks sure to suit, Oliver Sherwood's progressive hurdler gets the vote ahead of last month's Kelso runner-up Arctic Court.
