Kalanisi Kid scored at Hexham in June but was pulled-up in a handicap on last month's reappearance and BORULER makes more appeal. The latter ran out an easy winner on his hurdling debut at Kelso and Donald McCain's charge should be up to defying a winners' penalty here. Grove Pride and Vintage Star sport the same colours for different trainers and both have shown enough in bumpers to suggest they'll be winning hurdle races before long, while Dhaular Dhar returns to jumping on the back of a win on the Flat at Doncaster and is preferred to hurdling newcomer Call Of Duty.
