Azerodegree has a second at Hexham back in May to his credit and Mandarin Sunset has found only one too good on his last couple of outings. Both can be given a chance in this. BELLGROVE finished third to Franciscan over 2m at this track on his hurdling bow. Collateral form with the latter gives Ian Semple's charge the edge over Biggar, who also made the frame at the same meeting here three weeks ago, and the former is taken to come out best. The remainder will do well to figure on what little they've shown so far.
