Verdict

Barizan is by far the best of these over hurdles but has looked far from the finished article since sent over fences. He made heavy weather of things when scoring on his chasing debut and was being scrubbed along when falling in a three-horse affair at Southwell. He may well start at decent odds as a result but obviously comes with risks attached. That'Ll Do failed to build on the promise of a successful chasing debut when outpointed last time and Paul Nicholls now drops him back in trip. Daneva will find this tougher than when landing a handicap so the vote goes to TWO KISSES in receipt of a considerable weight and sex allowance. She skipped round here nicely on debut and looks the sort to primarily earn her corn on good ground off low weights over the larger obstacles.
