Black Cow will need to improve on his debut at Kempton in February to get involved here and more interesting is Miller's Maverick, who stayed on late at Ludlow last month. Hologram and Fereni are interesting newcomers as the former is Flat-bred while the latter is a half-brother to a winning hurdler but ZULU OSCAR wasn't beaten far here on debut and finished just ahead of a subsequent winner that day. Harry Fry's gelding can get off the mark now.
