A good run in the novice hurdle by Gunfleet would be a pointer to the chances of Stratford runner-up Solomon Grey. Atomic Rumble will be looking to recoup Ludlow losses but might be vulnerable again if Sean Bowen opts to make the running. Court Liability and Fenlons Court could be useful recruits from the point-to-point circuit but Tidal Flow might be the most interesting newcomer being a half-brother to two winning jumpers. FORGOT TO ASK has the penalty for scoring at Chepstow in the spring but was very impressive and probably capable of better this term.
