Promised Wings should give another good account, while better is expected from Alystar with the experience of last month's hurdling debut at Huntingdon under her belt. The Hague is another with potential after travelling well for some way on his first start over timber at Ffos Las, but preference is for KOUP DE KANON. He was a disappointing favourite over C&D last month, but his conditional jockey asked him to make up a lot of ground in the middle of the race and he was a spent force in the closing stages. Emma Lavelle's charge gets another chance here with Jack Doyle taking over the reins.
