A slight mistake at the last may have cost Elzahann victory at Musselburgh on her first start over fences. She looks sure to make her presence felt here, but decent hurdler The Knoxs fell on his chasing debut and the jury is out on him for the present. COOL MISSION looked in need of the run on his recent return to action over hurdles but has won three of his six starts over timber. If he can translate his best form to these larger obstacles, then Donald McCain's charge could prove the one to beat.
