Tony McCoy and Jim Best are a partnership to be feared during the summer months and while LYSSIO was turned over in a similar contest at Uttoxeter, he faced a difficult task in giving away weight to an experienced rival, and we'll expect to see him priced accordingly. Kettlewell probably wasn't conceived with hurdling in mind but Warren Greatrex's inmate won a bumper at Fakenham in fine style and was far from disgraced in a subsequent appearance at Stratford. Tim Vaughan has three in the race and jockey bookings suggest Ifan as the pick. The five-year-old was lightly raced on the Flat and landed a maiden at Wolverhampton in March. Bad Girls has yet to show anything for David Pipe although the four-year-old is watched in the market as she is in receipt of plenty of allowances.
