A winner of a hurdle race at 2m on good ground, but that win was over two years ago. Beaten 13l behind Winston C at 25-1 when seventh of 13 on his chase debut at Saratoga over 2m (good) last month. This looks beyond his capabilities.

Placed in two hurdle races from eight NH starts. Finished 12l behind Winston C when fifth of 13 at 18-1 on his chase debut at Saratoga over 2m (good) last month. This additional yardage could help.

All The Way Jose historical data/form

WINSTON C accounted for most of this field under Tom Garner a few weeks ago and could prove tough to stop once more. Peppay Le Pugh is fancied to do better this time now accustomed to life in the US, while Hinterland, third behind the selection last time, is also noted.

Lucky Bet historical data/form

INTERNET OF THINGS probably isn't one of Chad Brown's stable stars, but he takes a big drop in class here and could claim a confidence-boosting success. Lucky Bet and Eddy Dirt can give him most to ponder.
