Orlittlebylittle duly got off the mark when dropped into selling company at Market Rasen last month but that was a particularly weak contest and he's no certainty to follow up here under a penalty. Preference is for the four-year-old RASAM ALDAR, who had some decent form before Christmas and actually contested the Grade 1 Finale Hurdle at Chepstow though was well beaten. Paddy Partridge won over 2m here in 2010 but is hard to fancy on recent form.
