Last year's winner Brindisi Breeze went on to Grade 1 glory in the Albert Bartlett at Cheltenham and Two Rockers is entered in the latter event. He remains unbeaten despite blundering at the last in both starts over hurdles and has to come into the reckoning having beaten SHOTGUN PADDY a length at Towcester on his hurdling debut. The latter re-opposes on much better terms today and Emma Lavelle's charge is fancied to turn the tables on the back of his third in a handicap at Chepstow last month. Creepy was thrown in at the deep-end on his hurdling bow in a Grade 2 at Cheltenham but finished a respectable fourth. He's preferred to the penalised Ardkilly Witness and Loose Preformer, who reverts to hurdling after a long absence.
