King Vuvuzela came here last month on a long losing run but was well supported and won as he liked. He's obviously close to his best but the assessor has had his revenge with a 14lb rise and this is much tougher. Los Amigos made a winning debut over fences in a novice chase at Fairyhouse and is probably high enough in the weights for his handicap debut. Mackeys Forge ran poorly at Downpatrick and though his earlier form gives him a chance he doesn't win often enough. MISS PEPPERPOT looked in need of the run at Galway last month and hated the heavy ground but if she's in the same kind of form as when successful at Killarney in May she can take this.
