A watch the market race to round off a decent afternoon's racing and as AVOCA PROMISE is a full brother to a number of bumper winners, we can have hope that he will be in a position to give a good account of himself today. Bumblebee is respected from the improving Warren Greatrex yard. The pedigree suggests that he will be even better once he sent over a staying trip. Ericht is a close relation to former two mile winner, Native Scout and may be capable of rounding off a successful day for the Nicky Henderson team. Hard Tackle is from the family of Grand National winner, Rhyme N Reason. Lord Liath has already had the benefit of a racecourse outing and though easy to back on that occasion, with Alan King among the winners of late, we can anticipate a much better effort this time around.
