ELECTROLYSER is going hurdling relatively late in life but won a couple of Listed races on the Flat and wasn't beaten far in a Group 3 at Ascot in October when last seen. He shouldn't be troubled by today's trip or going and probably need only to jump round safely to make a winning start over timber. Market Rasen winner The Mumper looks the best of those with experience though Kilmurvy, Oscar Zulu and Sidney Melbourne have all shown some promise in bumpers and can't be ignored.
