Verdict

The booking of Jamie Spencer for Hail Tiberius is interesting but his mount hasn't shown a great deal over hurdles this winter and this may be too sharp for him. Ahlawy came back to form in a C&D claimer two weeks ago, while Faithful Ruler is a reliable sort at this level and can be forgiven his run over a shorter trip on the Fibresand last week. Marvo is usually thereabouts but RED SOMERSET should have his measure at the weights and probably need only reproduce the form of last month's second at Lingfield to score here.
