Sin Bin has already won a couple of bumpers and will be fancied to complete a quick double for Paul Nicholls if our selection in the first has obliged. But this could turn out to be an informative contest as a number of these should come into their own now tackling hurdles. Tim Vaughan runs Captain Moonman and In The Dock, while Cheat The Cheater was second in a Ffos Las bumper in April. Shotgun Paddy won in that sphere at Thurles in February but just as interesting is TOLKEINS TANGO. Victor Dartnall's gelding beat Bladoun, who runs in the opener, on his racecourse debut here last season and wasn't beaten far on a return visit under a penalty in March. This longer trip should suit and he looks a nice prospect.
