Oscar Hoof won at Ludlow on debut before finishing third under a penalty at the Shropshire course. Jerry McGrath takes off 3lb and he is probably the one to beat here but Araku Valley showed a bit more at Musselburgh last time while Oscar Tanner has already been placed at Fontwell and Southwell. KEEFFES WELL caught the eye at Limerick six weeks ago and will certainly improve for the experience. With his weight allowance, he gets the vote as none of the newcomers are particularly well conected.
