It's difficult to make a strong case for any of these. BOLBERRY SPRINGS gets a token vote on his handicap debut after a fourth over course and distance last month. Bernisdale has shown little over hurdles since winning a maiden back in 2011 but Lovely Muck has a shout on last year's second in soft ground at Ffos Las. Chankillo has separated a couple of poor efforts with a second at Bangor while Doheny Bar won a chase at Plumpton back in March and is 5lb higher for only his fourth start over hurdles.
