NED STARK was only beaten two lengths by the useful Mosspark on his hurdling debut at Exeter in November and has the potential to be a bit better than these. He can make a winning reappearance ahead of By The Boardwalk, who showed promise in the autumn though hasn't done much in two starts since the turn of the year. The longer trip suited Rendezvous Peak at Wetherby last time but Rossoneri took a backward step at Huntingdon last month when returning from a break.
