The Tracey Shuffle drops down in trip for his return to hurdling having gone close over fences here last week. He looks sure to figure and is preferred to Simply Ned, who remains 10lb higher than his win at Musselburgh back in 2011. ROCKAWANGO is a winner in France and still finding his feet for James Ewart. He posted an improved effort over track and trip last time when third to Veloce and may come out best in this. Lady Bluesky was placed at the track last time and makes more appeal than Star Of Aragon and Embsay Crag.
