Verdict

Artic Night won over hurdles at Worcester last month but stable companion WHAT A GOOD NIGHT possibly has the greater scope. The switch to fences should suit the five-year-old and, with Ryan Hatch taking off 7lb, he can open his account today. Lucky To Be Alive is another likely to improve for tackling fences while The Goldmeister has twice been placed over the larger obstacles at Newton Abbot this summer. Bincombe was often placed over timber but doesn't look particularly well treated here.
