MY LAD PERCY has been competing in better company and finished well ahead of Tarvini when third at Worcester. He can race off the same mark and a similar effort should be good enough. Stonethrower hasn't won over hurdles since 2011 but showed a bit more at Ffos Las recently while Franklin Roosevelt can race off a lower mark back over the smaller obstacles. Viking Blond won a selling hurdle when last seen at track in April, while Huntingdon winner Southway Queen can race off the same mark today, but was tailed off here on her reappearance.
