Verdict

Heavy ground will hold no fears for Sustainability but it's a while since he ran over hurdles and nine months since he last saw a racecourse. Tiger O'Toole is also better known as a chaser nowadays and is another returning from a break but ROUDOUDOU VILLE was having his first start for two years when fourth at Chepstow. He'll also be back over fences soon but can take this en route as Virak's last run came in a four-year-old chase and he was tailed off on earlier start at Chepstow, though did win twice last spring. Wily Fox is on a career-high mark but running well and wouldn't be without a chance.
