This won't take much winning so we'll take a chance on ROSEINI, who wasn't beaten far over a slightly longer trip here last month and will get every assistance from the saddle. Meridiem has a chance at the weights but this trip stretches his stamina while Prince Pippin only won a seller at Wetherby last month, though this is little better. The Fox's Decree has won twice over fences but his record over hurdles reads 0-34 and he's likely to find at least a couple too good again.
