The veteran DAWN RIDE has reverted to hurdling in fine shape and scored over 3m here last month. He generally races over much further than this though is often in the lead at this trip as he was last time so he can go in again under the promising Joe Colliver. Stormy Morning went up 9lb for his Sedgefield success and has struggled but the assessor has relented and dropped him 2lb so better is expected. Nisaal is still a maiden and jumped moderately at Ayr last time when he was just behind North Brook and though Battle Honour was in good form at this stage a year ago he's shown nothing for some time.
