A low-grade seller but one in which there could well be a plot or three. DORRY K is likely to be popular for the Best team which boasts a good record in such contests, the mare having been backed into favouritism when last seen over timber in February. She found one too good that day in Be Bop Boru in better grade than this and was previously successful, also at a higher level at Warwick. She should have too many guns for this field if displaying that level of form now. Gary Moore has been profitable here with hurdlers in the past five years and Osgood should give a good account for the yard now dropped in grade. He's a danger along with Bold Adventure, who's also performed in far better races than this on three hurdling starts this year and enters calculations on the best of his form. Topweight Stevie Thunder isn't ruled out either.
