Leopard Hills was a stylish winner of selling hurdles at Exeter and Stratford before returning to the latter course to claim fourth spot in a decent handicap won by Tatispout. He did hold an entry at Bangor yesterday, however. FOLK TUNE followed up sound fencing efforts with a fair fourth at Stratford over timber and should be spot-on after a recent Flat outing - he receives narrow preference dropped to this level for the first time. Ockey De Neulliac hasn't been seen over hurdles since 2009 but has shown fair form in handicap chases. He may find the aforementioned pair have too much toe for him on this return to timber but is not ruled out in what is an above average seller.
