JONNY DELTA looks interesting in this as he ran a number of fair races on the Flat earlier this year and has already won an Ayr bumper under NH Rules. Jim Goldie's five-year-old gets the nod though it would be no surprise to see a good run from Buthelezi, a winner on the Flat for John Gosden. Lingfield runner-up Oscar Magic looks a better bet than June's Wetherby third Lifetime while Glyn Ceiriog was second at Uttoxeter before unseating her rider at Bangor and Nicky Richards' pair Bernardelli and Scarlet Fire should improve for the switch to hurdles.
