Jason Maguire has chosen Swift Arrow, a three times winner over fences, ahead of point-to-point and bumper winner Clondaw Hero and he deserves respect. Desgrey made steady improvement last season and should be thereabouts while Standintheband won a maiden hurdle at Perth in April and is preferred to Cumbrian Farmer and Lakefield Rebel. DROP OUT JOE only had to be pushed out to win at Uttoxeter last month. The form is nothing special but that was his first sight of hurdles in public and, with improvement almost guaranteed, he can defy his penalty.
