Doing Fine won a point-to-point in March and only found one too good on his debut under Rules in a Fontwell bumper. This is going to be his trip over hurdles and he should be winning soon but the form of KAKI DE LA PREE's run behind King's Palace at Fontwell was advertised when the winner when on to score by 18 lengths at Cheltenham. Tom Symonds's charge has to be the selection. Closing Ceremony is a full brother to very useful hurdler/chaser Highland Lodge and he likes soft ground so there should be plenty more to come from Emma Lavelle's four-year-old following a third in a Wincanton bumper.
