Heronry got off the mark over hurdles at the third time of asking when scoring at Sandown last month. He's probably open to further improvement but has a massive task at the weights if he's to overturn Ludlow running in November with ENTER PARADISE. Nicky Henderson's charge was more than 13 lengths behind Charlie Mann's nine-year-old on that occasion and is 7lb worse off now. Lower Hope Dandy and Noble Friend represent powerful stables but will need to be decent to land this.
