Perth winner Amilliontimes found one too good at Kelso when a couple of lengths ahead of BEIDH TINE ANSEO. But that was the latter's first run since May last year so he should improve here and is taken to turn the tables. Unidexter and Endeavor have both been beaten off higher marks since winning back in September but veteran Dhaular Dhar is fit from the Flat and has a shout on last season's win at Perth. Novice hurdle winner Separate Shadows has his first start for over a year but could still figure for the McCain yard.
