BYGONES OF BRID found the company too hot in the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham but had earlier finished a very good second in a Grade 2 at Newbury and gave weight and a beating to Thursday's Musselburgh winner D'Gigi on his debut. He could be a decent recruit to hurdling and can take this. A P McCoy's presence on board Peckhamecho suggests last month's Cheltenham third is the pick of Rebecca Curtis' trio, though he's held by the selection on bumper form. Foxbridge is a winning pointer but was well beaten in a bumper here in March.
