Kingdom Of Munster proved disappointing over hurdles, as did the majority of these, but still has top weight to carry in this novices' handicap despite finishing well beaten on his chasing bow at Hexham. Jamesson has to go close if reproducing his latest second behind prolific winner Forever My Friend at Ffos Las but, hoping that victory in a selling hurdle at Cartmel has boosted confidence, we'll take THE GOOD GUY to finally come good over the larger obstacles and get the better of Market Rasen third Dr Dreamy and the others.
