ONE FOR HARRY got his act together over hurdles at Sedgefield last month when scoring by six lengths. Up 8lb for his troubles, Nicky Richards' charge remains unexposed and makes more appeal than Peaks Of Fire. The latter has won a seller but usually finds at least one too good off his current mark. Bunratty ran fresh on his reappearance at this track and better is expected today but Goodlukin Lucy disappointed last time after showing some promise on her hurdling debut. Lakeman failed to score on the Flat last year but won a novice hurdle back in 2011 and may figure.
