Makbullet could make no impression in better company over C&D last time but had gone close earlier on this track and should be in the firing-line today. Bowdler's Magic, a decent sort on the Flat, stepped up on his hurdling debut here last time when runner-up to Ingleby Spirit but gives the impression a stiffer test would suit while High Office may also prefer a longer trip having got outpaced when favourite at Catterick last month. LEMON DROP RED travelled strongly and jumped well on his hurdling debut at Kempton, just finding the more experienced Ranjaan too strong on the run-in. A similar performance will see him go one better today. Zaru's future probably lies in handicaps but he could be best of the rest.
