GROUSE LODGE, winner three times over hurdles this season and already successful between the flags, is likely to be a warm order for his first run over the larger obstacles under Rules. He should win but there are one or two promising types in this. Badgers Cove had a decent record over timber and will have needed his reappearance after a lay-off while Buddy Bolero is unexposed and won over hurdles at Folkestone a year ago, though hasn't been seen since. Moscow Mule has a bit of experience but also returns following a break, as does winning pointer Hilda Wild.
