Verdict

Three times a winner over hurdles, Alpha Victor has claims on official ratings but he refused and deposited his rider on the deck on his chasing bow at Doncaster. So this looks another good opportunity for SWATOW TYPHOON given he's won two of his three starts over fences. Donald McCain's charge landed the odds with the minimum of fuss at Ayr last time when Isaacstown fell and Harrys Whim had taken a tumble behind the selection at Newcastle earlier. Mondo Cane makes his debut under Rules and has his first start since finishing third in a point-to-point in 2012.
