Goohar looked in need of a thorough test of stamina when runner-up to Masquerade at Bangor and Jake Greenall will ensure there's a strong gallop. DESOTO COUNTY, a winning point-to-pointer and bumper, came up against a potentially useful performer in Stellar Notion at Bangor and went down fighting so he's the pick on his hurdling debut. Dibdabs is back with Maurice Barnes after scoring for Willie Mullins at Tramore in April and has every chance of making a decent hurdler.
