Formscan - REMASTERED arrives having gone one better than his Coral Trophy effort when scoring at Kempton over Christmas. That success was made all the more impressive as he was inconvenienced at the start and the switch back to hurdles, where he is 10lb lower than his chase rating, may see him continue in a similar vein of form. Call Me Lord tends to save his best for Sandown and was very unlucky here on his penultimate start in December when narrowly beaten by Dolphin Square due to his rider dropping his hands. He is respected along with Green Book, who won this contest 12 months ago.
