PROMISING TIMES, a strong bumper performer, can take this first prize back to Ireland. Partnered by AP McCoy, this Tipperary winner ran very well on his recent comeback from injury and turned out just six days later he might prove too strong. Present To You sets the standard of those who have raced over hurdles and this 124-rated gelding is respected, although he passed up a good opportunity at Warwick on his final start last season. Frontier Spirit is respected on his hurdling bow given the record of Nigel Twiston-Davies both at this time of year and at this track, whilst Gordon Elliot is another to have plundered many a prize here in the past and his duo are not ruled out. Of the rest Fightstar and Devotion To Duty make most appeal.
