Imjoeking had already won a point-to-point and a bumper before only finding Morning Royalty too good on his hurdling debut at Carlisle. He'll be fancied to go one better here while Jumbo Supreme may prove a little better than he's shown so far, though this could prove on the sharp side. BIG WATER won a couple of bumpers last term and the fact that he twice ran well under penalties is usually a good sign. He was arguably out of his depth in his final outing at Aintree in April but this could be a good opportunity to make a winning start over timber. Croco Bay and Logical Approach have shown some ability but the latter is starting to look exposed.
