OZETA won a fillies' Listed hurdle at Auteuil in September having won twice on the Flat in France earlier in the year. She could be a useful recruit to the hurdling ranks and can make the most of her allowance against the boys. Hinterland is also a Listed winner at Auteuil and should make his presence felt, while Hollow Tree won twice over 1m6f at Sandown in July and made a successful start to his new career with a smooth win at Bangor. He makes more appeal than Secret Edge, who was receiving 8lb when just getting the better of Countrywide Flame at Wetherby and had earlier been beaten by today's rival Jackies Solitaire at Chepstow.
