Unowhatimeanharry is the classiest hurdler in the field and sets the clear form standard based on his dominance of the 3m hurdling division last term. However, he is running over trip short of his best, has bigger targets in mind later in the season and this small field, and potentially muddling pace, are perhaps not ideal for him from a tactical viewpoint. There is good reason to believe Value At Risk, a Grade 2 hurdles winner, could ruffle a few feathers on the front end here at what is likely to be a big price, but TOP NOTCH boasts some classier hurdles form and appears more likely to cash in if the first-named disappoints. He enjoyed a productive chasing campaign last term, winning the Scilly Isles and finishing runner-up to Yorkhill in the JLT, and for all he's likely to be sent back over fences after this outing, his hurdles form in isolation is very strong and he may still emerge on top, competing over his optimum trip.
A very interesting contest in store, with the vote going to TOP NOTCH on his return to timber as the 8 lb he receives from top-class stayer Unowhatimeanharry could well be decisive, especially with the latter having to come back in trip.
