Shinrock Hill hasn't run for a year and makes his chasing bow at an advanced age but he's definitely one to note in the market. Marie Des Anges made a winning debut over fences at Market Rasen but jumped moderately before unshipping her rider at Catterick. She's been given a confidence booster over hurdles and has to be on the short-list with her allowances. Riskier has more experience than most and has been going well in handicaps but it was very heavy ground when Highrate scored at Hexham and he hasn't done quite so well on drier going subsequently. EYRE APPARENT couldn't cope with Dashing George here last time but should get the test of stamina he needs and looks ready to gain his second success over fences.
