SCOTS GAELIC hasn't won over hurdles since 2012 but has been keeping better company than this since arriving from Ireland and may well be good enough today. Wither Yenot was third over 3m here last month after winning at Plumpton and should be thereabouts again while Brass Monkey has also been running well, though is probably high enough in the weights now. Daliance is a bit better than he's shown lately but has now had eight tries to lose his maiden tag.
