If the previous race goes to plan Tony McCoy could be looking at a quick double here. He gets the leg-up on SIR FREDLOT, beaten only a length at Sandown last time by the progressive Feb Thirtyfirst with a previous winner six lengths back in third. Coup De Grace, While You Wait and Asparella all finished a long way behind the selection at Sandown while Dollar Bill has yet to threaten in a couple of starts over timber though he does drop down a grade for this. Mick Channon gives dual 7f winner Shamrocked his first taste of hurdling and Tramore maiden winner Spider Zagato is worth a second glance on his hurdling bow for a new trainer.
