Deireadh Re was well adrift of Knock A Hand over hurdles at Newbury in February when receiving weight. He didn't appear to take to fences at Fakenham in May and is probably best watched here. Richard Lee will have high hopes that his charge can win races over the larger obstacles this winter as he's already won twice between the flags while Di Kaprio and Masters Hill are other decent long-term prospects. But the really interesting one in this may be REV IT UP, who could prove a bit of a star for Tim Vaughan this season and can reverse hurdles form with Deireadh Re at Cheltenham at the end of last year now tackling fences.
