Doyen Breed stayed on well to score at Perth in September but penalties can be difficult to overcome in bumpers. Call Me Freddie improved to finish second at Carlisle and Six One Nine finished third at Kelso last month behind a stablemate of newcomer Get With It. Kilrush Getaway has a jumping pedigree and is one to note in the betting market but Keith Dalgleish is more than capable of getting one ready at home and PENNY BLAK’s absence since a second to a subsequent hurdles winner at Hexham last year isn’t necessarily a negative.
