Verdict

ULTRAVOX did really well over hurdles last season, winning four times including a victory over Haydock's fixed brush hurdles in April. Jeremy Scott's four-year-old hasn't raced since finishing well beaten at the Punchestown Festival at the start of the May but he receives all the allowances on his chasing bow and must go close if his jumping holds up. Pena Dorada, another four-year-old, could be the danger as he only found L'Eldorado too good on his first run over fences at Hexham earlier this month. Spice Bar has been in good form on the Flat and over timber this year but there is nothing in his pedigree to suggest he'll make a chaser so is probably best watched here while Midnight Opera has disappointed in his two runs so far over the larger obstacles.
