VINSTAR has finished a bit closer in better company than this of late. McCoy takes over the reins today and Donald McCain's charge gets the nod. Broughtons Warrior showed some promise on his hurdling bow at Huntingdon and should be thereabouts while Jac The Legend will appreciate today's faster ground and may also get involved. Bumper winner Wymeswold has shown little over timber so far. However, and King's Opus is making his hurdling bow on his first start since May.
