4/1
Fair Flat performer (stays 1¾m) who left his hurdling debut form behind to land a weak race at Plumpton (17.8f) last month. Will find this more difficult under a penalty and stamina also to prove.

4/9
Point winner who made a promising start over hurdles last season, clear of the remainder when second of 8 in introductory event over C&D last time. Sets a good standard and can go on improving.

17/2
Fair ex-Irish 12f maiden who showed similar form over hurdles for new yard in the spring, second at Stratford (18.7f) in March. Weak in betting and disappointed 6 months on at Fontwell, though.

Betting

Forecast

Does He Know (4/9), Zarrar (4/1), Switch Hitter (4/1), Zarafshan (17/2), Arcadian Pearl (10/1), Crystal Gazing (12/1), Stadmallen (12/1), Peddler (33/1), Fier Echezeaux (50/1), Go On Chez (100/1), Vulcan Bomber (100/1)

Verdict

DOES HE KNOW sets a good standard on his runner-up effort over this C&D 10 months ago and should prove hard to beat if returning in similar form. Switch Hitter and Arcadian Pearl are in excellent hands so could do much better now hurdling up in trip, despite showing only minor promise in bumpers.
