Bathwick Brave has run well enough in bumpers at Taunton and Ffos Las and is much more likely to make a hurdler. He should go well as should Lamps, whose two placed efforts over hurdles earlier this year came in very testing ground. SOLLIM had shown some promise in France and looked as though he just needed the run on his debut for Paul Nicholls at Hereford in January. He'll be better for that experience and gets the vote to gain his first success. Thecircleoftrust landed a Worcester bumper in some style in May and is another to keep an eye on as he makes his hurdling debut along with Warwick bumper winner Russe Blanc, who will love the testing ground.
