This looks pretty tight, although Key To The West is at a disadvantage under a penalty for last Tuesday's win at Lingfield and Wing Mira has no real form. Point-to-point winner It's A Doddle made a promising start at Uttoxeter when finishing clear of the rest in third place and Master Red found only the progressive Irish Cavalier too good at this track on his hurdling bow. ROLLING MAUL is more experienced and a length defeat at Ffos Las last time suggests Peter Bowen's charge is ready to open his account and he gets the nod.
