Irish raider Orraloon returned from a lengthy absence with a decent fifth at Bellewstown and makes most appeal of those with experience on that form. Red Danger Angel finished runner-up over C&D back in February and Antonius Lad will have come on for his reappearance run at Hereford. However, this can go to a newcomer with a couple of likely candidates in Seriously and CEVARO. The latter gets the vote given Nicky Henderson's fine strike rate in bumpers at this course and his Milan filly is taken to score at the first time of asking.
