ANGER MANAGEMENT makes his hurdling debut after four run in bumpers, which included a victory at Worcester last month. This probably won't take much winning and Rebecca Curtis' five-year-old is preferred to winning pointer Drop Out Joe and Keltic Rhythm, who may also need this. Mortlestown has also won between the flags while Portway Flyer has his sights lowered a little and could play a part.
