Ballyben and Milano Magic, arguably the best of those with previous hurdling experience, were both pulled up last time and have a bit to prove now but Oneofpear has been placed in a couple of starts at Market Rasen and can figure along with the returning Shimla Dawn, who showed promise in two runs at Wetherby last year. Sankyouplease is a bumper winner but the interesting one could be PRINT SHIRAZ. Rose Dobbin's gelding quickened well to land a Ballybunion point-to-point in May and his proven stamina will be an asset on this stiff track.
