Final Pass and Rain Down are both recent winners between the flags. Call Me Emma won a point-to-point last season while Pyrshan also graduates from that sphere. Earl The Pearl and BELLS 'N' BANJOS are interesting newcomers. The former who is half-brother to a winner over hurdles here so gets the nod as he's from a yard who knows the time of day in bumpers.
