Verdict

Cape York left his debut run over hurdles well behind when beating a previous winner over 2m4f at Carlisle. The extra half-mile shouldn't be a problem but he faces no easy task here under a penalty. Billy Biscuit was second to the useful Sausalito Sunrise at Bangor last month while Shantou Tiger was third at that track before unseating his rider at Wetherby. TSAR ALEXANDRE has produced a couple of solid efforts so far over timber and his yard is in sparkling form. He wouldn't need to improve much on his best form to take this.
