MCMURROUGH looks the bet here and he is taken to prevail at the main expense of Night Orbit and King O'The Gypsies. The selection has twice gone close this season and he certainly deserves to get his head in front. This longer trip will certainly suit and he is a confident choice. Night Orbit went close on the flat last month at Nottingham and that run should have blown away a few cob-webs. He has finished in the first two on all four of his starts over hurdles and he has to be respected. King O'The Gypsies was a fair sort on the flat and he is certainly worth noting in the market on his debut over hurdles. Frosty Lad looks potentially a nice type but his trainer believes he may be sharper for this outing and he is probably best watched today. An interesting race and the vote goes to McMurrough.
