Third Act is easily the best of those with previous form in this and he's a full brother to a jumps winner. But there is plenty of interest among the newcomers with Darloa bred to do well under NH Rules and Summer Sounds being a half-brother to smart Irish hurdler/chaser Felix Yonger. Neither Jonjo O'Neill nor A P McCoy have a particular good record here in bumpers but they team up with LESS TIME, who is a full brother to a couple of winners and likely to have the pace for this - he gets the nod.
