Verdict

Tominator couldn't handle Grade 2 company at Cheltenham on his latest start and was always better on a faster surface on the Flat. He is taken on with MASTER OF THE GAME, even though Nicky Henderson's gelding hasn't been seen since winning a Bangor maiden hurdle by 17 lengths in May last year. Leviathan seems to have trouble staying the trip over hurdles and weakened before the last when favourite at Ffos Las last time while it's difficult to make a case for any of the others including newcomers Clonusker and Urcalin.
