Hellbender has struggled since winning a claimer at Lingfield in January while Sakash failed to beat a rival at Kempton in the same month having won at Southwell earlier. Grace Hull usually runs her race here, though both course wins have been over 6f. Master Of Disguise hasn't won since 2012 and all four victories to date came over the minimum trip, so the vote goes to HIERARCH. He has the beating of See The Storm on collateral form having landed a three-runner affair over track and trip last week and can follow up in this.
