Fair hurdler who has improved for switch to chasing, building on his reappearance effort when running out a comfortable winner here (17f) in November. Resumed winning ways at Sandown 17 days ago and this looks another good opportunity.

Recorded a brace of small-field novice hurdle victories last season. Better with each start over fences, crucially jumping better (in first-time cheekpieces) when opening his account over C&D 5 weeks ago. Can go well again.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

The progressive KOTMASK posted a good timefigure when scoring at Sandown last time and he can strike again. Scarface jumped better fitted in this headgear when winning over C&D 5 weeks ago is next best.

Betting Forecast

4/1 Chanceux (Ire), 10/3 Ballybeen (Ire), 13/8 Kotmask (Fr), 7/2 Scarface (Ire)
