Beyond has scored over today's trip on the Flat so David Pipe's hurdler is worth noting and another winning hurdler in Fair Trade can also be considered. But PRESTO VOLANTE continues to improve and the course and distance winner went in again at Lingfield last month. He's upped 7lb but scored by five lengths and makes more appeal than recent Brighton winner The Holyman. Sunny Future won over 1m4f here last time but is stepping up in class off a higher mark today.
