PAMPLONA RUN, a half-brother to bumper and hurdles winner Glorious Twelth, is held in high regard. He's already won twice over 3m between the flags and should prove hard to beat on his debut under Rules. Kris Spin was placed over 3m at Bangor in April and again at Towcester on his reappearance. He should make the frame again but Champagne Rian needs to improve on his second at Ffos Las, though rates a better bet than stable companion Bob Keown. Sausalito Sunrise has to prove he stays this far but he's got some fair form to his name, including his latest third at Cheltenham, and can't be ignored.
