BENJAMIN BITTERN won a bumper at Market Rasen in April last year and the runner-up has already scored twice over hurdles this autumn. It's no surprise that Jason Maguire has chosen him ahead of stablemate Moscow Presents and he gets the vote ahead of Un Bon P'Tit Gars, a narrow winner over C&D in May on only his second start over hurdles. Spanish Arch has already won a point-to-point and had an education in bumpers last season while the mare Buddy Love won a bumper in May, though the form hasn't worked out.
