BE BOP BORU will be having his third start in as many weeks and can complete a hat-trick. Tim Vaughan's charge ploughed through the mud to score at Wincanton then followed up in a Newcastle conditionals' event last week for which he goes unpenalised. Sleep In First completed a four-timer over fences at this time a year ago and can revert to hurdling on a much lower rating though he didn't run well at Musselburgh last month. Lebanna has shown promise and makes her handicap debut but winning bumper Mister Jones has yet to reveal any real talent for jumping hurdles though he's been racing over longer trips.
