Richard Hannon has won this for the past two years so Caramuru is one to note though his dam has produced a winning hurdler. Cool Climate is out of a Ribblesdale winner and is another likely to need further while there are plenty of other newcomers with nice pedigrees including FIREFRIGHT, a half-brother to 1m2f winner Absolute Zero, who is taken to make a successful debut. Forgivethenforget made a very encouraging start at Ascot when staying on after getting outpaced and Maldonado was very green on his introduction at Lingfield. Armagnac looked in need of the run at Doncaster and Used To Be should be winning soon, probably in a nursery.
