Milord is starting to become expensive to follow and was beaten when falling two out when favourite here last month in a race in which Vujiyama eventually finished third. Points winner Carraig Mor could be interesting while Murtys Delight won a Limerick bumper in March, though has his first start for a new yard today. I AM COLIN's jumping was novicey at Chepstow but that was understandable. He only weakened approaching the last and will know more today so gets the vote.
