CAROLE'S SPIRIT had some very decent form in bumpers, being placed in Listed events at Sandown and Aintree in the spring. She should take all the beating on her hurdling debut if the obstacles don't get in the way. Blue Buttons, Brantingham Breeze and Fountains May should also pick up races this term judged on their efforts in bumpers last season but Lacunae and Misty Mornin may need to have their sights lowered a little in the future.
