This is trappy but NAVY LIST scored here in June with a degree of authority on only his fourth start over hurdles and could well have more to offer so an 8lb penalty for that victory might not be prohibitive. Wheyaye is a consistent performer for the Jackson team and has gone well on all three starts this term on very differing ground types. She should continue to give a good account. Parson's Punch goes well at this track and will handle the forecast conditions. Denis O'Regan is a good booking and the C&D winner makes the shortlist along with Cadore who is likely to have more to deliver for the Lucinda Russell team.
