Verdict

IF THE CAP FITS was most impressive when accounting for Solomon Grey at Bangor last month, making it two from two over hurdles in the process. The runner-up came up with an improved performance of his own to win readily at Plumpton since, ensuring the form looks strong. Given that Harry Fry's charge is now 4lb better off with Solomon Grey and likely to improve again, he's hard to oppose in this opener. Anything sent to this race from Seven Barrows is respected, so it would be churlish to write off Diese Des Bieffes, ready winner of both hurdles starts to date, though yet to race on soft ground. Irish Prophecy is also entitled to be involved when it matters while Storm Home should find this shorter trip more to his liking.
