BUNRATTY should have a future over fences but it could be a wise decision to keep him over hurdles for the time being. He's 6lb higher than when scoring at Wetherby at the end of last month but is still preferred to Brother Scott, 4lb higher than when beaten two lengths by Morning Time over course and distance at the start of the month. Lucinda's Russell's charge is 7lb higher while it's a long time since Pete was in the winner's enclosure and the Cartmel second looks held by Brother Scott on earlier Sedgefield running.
