Apolskapart made good late headway when fourth at Gowran in December but hasn't raced since and has his first run for new connections today. Makbullet finally gained his reward for some decent efforts over hurdles when scoring over C&D last month. But the penalty may just be enough to prevent a follow up and we'll take him on with the progressive TALKIN THOMAS, who had more in hand than the winning distance suggests when beating the odds-on Rhymers Ha' at Newcastle last month. Boruler was a 25/1 chance when scoring over C&D in October but beaten when a favourite at Carlisle the following month and hasn't been seen since. He'll do well to win this after a lay-off.
