RED EYES won a Newmarket maiden on fast ground and gets quicker going for the first time over hurdles. He's already been placed at Market Rasen and Cartmel and this may just be within his capabilities under a competent 10lb claimer. Mighty Snazy has only managed one win in 13 starts over timber and has a penalty to carry while winning pointer Cloudy Joker has been a little disappointing so far under Rules and Tillernoora is clearly nothing special.
