Lightly raced on Flat in recent times, but has done well over hurdles. Probably didn't stay 21f over timber here last time and better expected back on the Flat.

Verdict

TANGRAMM has been out of luck since winning in March last year, but he ran on from an unlikely position to take third at Wolverhampton and that could be an indication that he's starting to hit form again. Elysian Prince was well beaten at Lingfield but has a squeak on the form of his win over shorter prior to that, while Safira Menina ran well under today's pilot over C&D and could be a factor. Light Of Air and Alcatraz are others to note in an open affair.

Verdict

ALCATRAZ wasn't seen to best effect last time and can bounce back to the level of his 2 previous runner-up efforts here this year and resume winning ways under Adam Kirby. Elysian Prince met trouble at Lingfield last time and is likely still in good form. Tangramm and Safira Menina are others with claims in an open heat.
