Despite a debut win, Credit Swap just doesn't convince that he truly stays 2m and is probably worth taking on here in his first handicap over hurdles. Lingfield winner Shinrock Hill couldn't handle the step up in class and distance at Ffos Las but should do better back in novice company, while James Pollard can improve on his comeback third. But this may be best left to ARRAYAN, who has struck up a good understanding with young Conor O'Farrell and has won his last two starts with the minimum of fuss. Though the handicapper has gone to town on the six-year-old, David Pipe may well have left himself with a little bit more to work with.
