Amuse Me returns to hurdling after a disappointing over fences. He's preferred to stablemate Bold Raider, who failed to cope with a 7lb rise last time for his earlier victory at Fontwell. CALL A TRUCE goes handicapping for the first time and he gets a tentative vote with the longer trip likely to suit. Bois Des Aigles is another making his handicap debut and could figure along with novice hurdle winner Kentford Legend. Key To Milan went close at Exeter last time but is now 11lb higher than his win over 2m4f here back in March.
