COMMANCHE RED accounted for Saturday's Uttoxeter winner Beakstown in a bumper at Kempton back in February and he was not disgraced in a Grade 2 at Aintree. He bolted up on his hurdling bow at Fontwell last month and he clearly sets the standard here. Talktomenow won between the flags earlier in the year and is one to note on his Rules debut, while Saturdaynightfever and Go Forrit complete the shortlist.
COMMANCHE RED has a penalty to shoulder, but he ran to a high level when making a winning hurdling debut at Fontwell last month, and will be tough to beat again. There is some potential in opposition however, headed by Getaway Trump, who caught the eye on hurdles bow 3 weeks ago, and point-winner Talktomenow.
