Having won a bumper at Uttoxeter, Lough Derg Way proved a disappointment on his hurdling debut at Worcester and may be best watched for now. Tony McCoy picks up the ride on PRICELESS ART and he's likely to start a short price today given he was only headed at the post at Sedgefield when last seen in March - he gets the vote. Big Bad Boo's best effort came when second at Fakenham back in May, though that was over a shorter trip, while Moving Wings and Golden Sparkle have shown little so far and Oscars Alice make a belated debut under Rules.
