Tindaro returns to novice company have been found wanting against seasoned handicappers over C&D in April. Paul Webber's grey shouldn't be far away but may struggle to give 10lb to the four-year-old ADIYNARA, who was a cosy winner on only her second start over hurdles at Wincanton and has obvious scope for improvement. Grand Lahou has won three times over fences and gone close a couple of times over the smaller obstacles but is thoroughly exposed nowadays. The others have a bit to find on these terms.
