WEE BAZ placed at Kelso on his debut despite failing to get a clear run and should be in the mix if building on that. Boy De La Vis finished third of five runners at Warwick back in April while Artic Row may do better today having undergone a wind operation. Had To Be Hugo went close between the flags in Ireland and debuts under Rules while Brian Hughes partners Ballin Bay with Impatient and Swedish Icon other newcomers to note.
