There are doubts about all of these, including recent runaway Kelso scorer, Deise Dynamo. That success arrived on heavy ground and he is totally unproven on ground this quick. He may be more than good enough but preference is for BALLINCURRIG from the Charlie Longsdon operation. He was very impressive when scoring under Gina Andrews in a Southwell bumper last April before dropping away tamely at Worcester last time. However, that was his first run for six months and hopefully the cobwebs should now have been well and truly blown away. He receives plenty of weight from the McCain topweight and can score again for Gina Andrews. Electric Tiger is the other contender of note, David Bridgwater's ex-German gelding having performed respectably on his hurdling debut at Huntingdon when fourth to Brassick in a fair contest.
