Verdict

Last month's Uttoxeter winner Alborz is preferred to Feb Thiryfirst of the two carrying a penalty in this but one or two of their rivals had better form on the Flat and may have more scope. Alan King runs French import Rayadour and While You Wait won over 1m2f at Down Royal in June for Jim Bolger. CROPLEY was lightly-raced on the level but placed in handicaps over 1m4f at the Curragh and Leopardstown over the summer and looks just the type to excel over hurdles. His stable won this three years ago and Tony Carroll's recent acquisition is certainly worth a look here if the market speaks in his favour. Dollar Bill and Electrician may be open to improvement but Sir Fredlot could struggle to last home, even on this sharp track.
