UP TO SOMETHING completed his hat-trick in a very competitive bumper at Newbury in March and is expected to hold his own in decent novice hurdles this winter. He can extend his unbeaten record at the main expense of Bankroll, a winner twice on the Flat in Ireland for Andrew Oliver earlier this year and now with Jonjo O'Neill. Glyn Ceiriog was placed in five of her 10 starts on the level and has joined Donald McCain's yard. She could be worth bearing in mind for an ordinary contest when she's got a bit of experience under belt but the jury is out on Petie McSweetie after a couple of modest efforts over timber.
