Verdict

It's difficult to get away from PRESENT VIEW in this. Last month's second at Huntingdon when just failing to catch Brassick is the best form on show and Jamie Snowden's charge can get off the mark now. Cornish Ice made a promising hurdling debut at Uttoxeter but that was back in 2010 and Moscow Presents is preferred having shown ability on his first start over timber despite a nine-length defeat. French import Cayman Islands looks a likely improver and was superior on the Flat to Royal Defence, well beaten at Huntingdon on his introduction to hurdling.
