Paul Nicholls has done well to get a couple of wins out of CAPTAIN KELLY over hurdles as he looks something of a one-paced galloper. However, he does stay well although appearing to have his limitations exposed over timber last time when in mid-division behind On The Bridge here over 2m7f. He's always looked more of a chaser and is taken to make a winner debut over fences in the hope that he'll handle the challenge with sufficient fluency. Awaywiththegreys represents Peter Bowen so must be respected and didn't do at all badly behind Prospect Wells at Ffos Las before being well beaten next time. Special Account has shown enough over fences the last twice to warrant shortlist inclusion.
