Winning point-to-pointer Power Of God has travelled a long way for this. Salto Chisco only found one too good at Uttoxeter on New Year's Eve while Aura Bora should improve as he gains experience. But LITTLE BOY BORU is by stayer Brian Boru out of winning hurdler and chaser How Is Things and Stuart Crawford's record here in bumpers is second to none. He can make a winning debut, though Proud Jack is another newcomer to note.
