In depth


CANICALLYOUBACK won at Worcester in July and improved again here nine days ago when running the useful Regulation to a length off level weights. He has a penalty to carry again but is race-fit, which is more than you can say about his likely market rivals. Abbreviate makes his hurdling debut and has his first start since April while Inchiquin All Star was last seen winning a Rathmorrisey point-to-point in March. Valseur Du Granval hasn't raced since December 2013 and Palermo Don may also need this.
