Tatispout is doubly penalised for her wins here and at Bangor in the spring and returns from a break today. She may be vulnerable against DEALING RIVER, who began his hurdling career by overturning the odds laid on Banyan Tree over C&D last month having shown promise in bumpers earlier. Neil King's charge gets the vote here with Yahrab's Market Rasen success probably not amounting to much. Winning miler Spa's Dancer may get home around this sharp track and may be the pick of the debutants as World Heritage has been largely disappointing on the Flat this year, though the booking of McCoy catches the eye.
