UNEX MODIGLIANI was lightly-raced on the Flat and showed that jumping will be his game when only beaten half-a-length on his hurdling debut at Huntingdon. He'll probably be a short price to go one better here. The danger looks to be Andi'Amu, who showed promise in his first two starts. Few of the others with experience have shown much and Conducting's wins on the all-weather came at a very low level. Lexington Blue won three times on the Flat but may need the experience today.
