LYRIC STREET can complete a quick double for Donald McCain as he was making hay in minor contests earlier in the summer and looks capable of defying a penalty against these. Four Shuck Men hasn't been seen since finishing tailed off at Uttoxeter in May of last year and Invisible Hunter makes his hurdling debut after a lengthy break since last running on the Flat, though a market move would be significant. Cherry Tiger looks very modest.
