Jeremy Scott has a terrific strike rate here and Notarfbad is one of several runners for the yard today. Placed at Stratford and Wincanton at the start of the year, he's open to plenty of improvement. Trip The Light needed his run at Stratford while Miss Exhibitionist has been placed in four of her six outings over hurdles, though was 15 lengths behind Tamarillo Grove at Southwell in July. Madamlily could figure off a low weight and Pampelonne is usually thereabouts but it could be worth taking a chance on WALDEN PRINCE. Awarded a maiden hurdle at Roscommon last year when with Denis Cullen, he started to make progress for Tony Carroll in the spring and should do better now fully acclimatised.
