The second division of this maiden hurdle is even less enthralling than the first division but there may be more to come from SAMARKAND, who won over 1m4f on the all-weather, and he gets the nod on his first start since starting favourite for a jumpers' bumper at Lingfield in January. Comedy House won a bumper last year and was placed several times on the Flat. He's already shown a bit of ability over hurdles and looks the danger ahead of Dougalstar.
