Sir Harry Hotspur is a half-brother to a couple of winning jumpers and looks the most interesting of the two newcomers in this. Miss H Lewiss has hinted at ability in point-to-points but IRISH CAVALIER looks capable of improving on his fifth at Stratford last month and is probably the one to beat as Hopping Hare finished last on his debut at Wincanton and Benefitofhindsight was still beaten 27 lengths when fourth at Newton Abbot. Tenor De Guerre looks as though he needs more time.
