An intriguing recruit to this sphere, the son of Scorpion makes his belated start under rules on debut for Warren Greatrex.

He won a bumper in fine form at Wexford back in March following a successful stint in point-to-points and could take all the stopping on his first start in this sphere under Gavin Sheehan.

Simon Crawford’s Irish raider Ballycoose left a taking impression at Down Royal earlier this year and could follow the selection home, while Famous Bridge also merits respect off the back of his Carlisle second on Halloween.

It could finally be the day for Phillip Kirby’s 6-year-old who ran creditably in four hurdle races last season, catching the eye when falling at Kelso but running solid efforts at Newcastle and Doncaster, thereafter.

He now switches to fences which should bring improvement given that he won and finished second on three occasions in point-to-points, looking to present plenty of value in this contest.

The form of Buzz De Turcoing‘s Wetherby second was knocked somewhat last week but he remains the one to beat.
