There looks to be one or two promising types facing the starter here including points winner Ballytober, who made a successful debut under Rules when landing a Ffos Las bumper last month. Make A Track is a half-brother to a bumper winner and from the same family as champion hurdler Make A Stand, but Ambion Wood and Univoque may need more time. CLEVER DICK is out of a prolific hurdler/chaser in France and cost Malcom Denmark £54,000 as a three-year-old. From a stable that usually have their newcomers well primed, he is fancied to make a winning start.
