PARLOUR GAMES made an impressive start over hurdles at Huntingdon but managed to get beat when odds-on at Stratford last time. Tony McCoy remains loyal and John Ferguson's charge gets another chance in this. Norfolk Sky won at Wincanton but got no further than the first obstacle at Fontwell last time when Discay finished third. The latter has subsequently gone close again. Autun won on the Flat for the Cecil yard last year and Richard Johnson's booking takes the eye as he goes hurdling for the first time.
