Verdict

Cengiz is a long-standing maiden while former pointer Another Puzzle has finished last in both starts under Rules. Sahrati has won on the Flat and over hurdles, however, including twice around here. But his recent efforts have been far from inspiring so preference is for HELPSTON, who has been up against more experienced rivals in his two starts over fences but has jumped well in both, despite looking a little quirky. Downward Spiral won a maiden hurdle at Towcester around this time last year and was second on his debut over the larger obstacles at Sedgefield four days ago but may have to settle for a place again here.
