Cambridgeshire winner CREDIT SWAP dispelled any doubts about his stamina with a smooth debut success over hurdles on soft ground at Leicester. Venetia Williams' six-year-old looks to have a future at the winter game and should be able to shrug off his penalty here. Bermuda Boy is also penalised after scoring at Exeter but is another with scope over timber, though may just lack the speed of his likely market rival. Thunderstorm will have benefited from his run behind Dona at Taunton and makes more appeal than Lingfield fourth Time Book and both Ben Cee Pee M and Senses, who haven't really taken to hurdling.
